(turn your face towards the sun, let the shadows fall behind you)
Cry your silver golden tears
And let them shine and shimmer when they hit the floor
Your lifeless eyes encrusted with rubies and topaz and leaking poison
These are the eyes of someone who looked straight into heaven and walked backwards
Then you turned around and sprinted
Drowning in darkness
Engulfing yourself with empty happiness
Look at me with your empty eyes and fill the room with silence that suffocates you
Someone once set your heart on fire and you let your life go up in flames
When you were younger you basked in the light so easily
Until the shadows taunted you
Until you made
And drowned out your feelings
Look at me now, gaze at me with your empty eyes and cry until your heart can beat in the empty air
How did you (turn your face towards the sun)?
How do you let the shadows fall behind you?
This was inspired by the song Towards the sun by Rihanna and a quote I once heard that went something along the lines of "looking into heaven and walking backwards"
