Empty room

I don’t want to see that empty room
I don’t want to walk in there alone
Too much light will blind my eyes
Empty like the hall beyond the skies

Lock the door
Leave it all behind
I don’t want to see the empty room
He will come to find
When the lions roar
Sirens disappearing from his mind

Will you walk with me inside the room?
Will I help you wear the shiny dress?
I don’t know if that suits you
Or am I just too scared to let you in?


The “empty room” (my very special thanks go to CB for suggesting me this vision) represents the void left by the absence of a presence we were used to; at times this might be scary, but we need to come to terms with it, and let it become part of our everyday life experience.
