I want you to remember what it was like when you were happy. When nothing really hurt, because there wasn't much there to break. Before your heartache darkened your spirit. Your emotions have fed you nothing but lies. But they're the only thing you have an appetite for. They're the drug that you crave above all else. I wish you could taste what joy tastes like. I wish you would starve the voices instead of yourself. I wish you'd hear the world singing again. I wish you could stare at the face of God and forget the sight of pain. Open your eyes. I know you want to feel alive. The world is waiting for you. It's waiting for you to laugh. It's longing for your voice of certainty. It waits for you to open up again. I miss when you were awake.
But I know that nothing good sleeps forever.
