I declare myself lost

Text: Malin Orrfalk

I declare myself lost
stripped down of dignity
torn away
from peaceful moments

your silence breeds
an agonizing pain
paralyzing
throughout every heartbeat

just one word
would shed light
upon deeply darkened soul
just one word

I declare myself lost
stripped down of dignity
torn away from peaceful moments

I miss
the smile in your voice
the laughter on your face
I miss you
for being you

for whom you ever were
a deeply cherished one
when words are left unsaid
when actions are left undone

Then I plead
for the sanity
of my mind
for just one word

I declare myself lost
stripped down of dignity
torn away from peaceful moments
