sometimes…is the passing of a certain time

…when we dream so much
…when we hope so much]
…when we pain so much

when your heart is full of emptiness
when your thoughts just come with no words
when all you want to do… is keep yourself in silence

when pain can hurt you no more
when there is no more space for another wound
when you are numbed…can no longer feel anything

when all you can do is make a sigh
when all you hold on has found its end
when you are just floating… in the wild vast of nothingness

when you thought everything is alright
when you have begun to think of so much joy
when you start to believe… that you are yourself to live on

sometimes…is the passing of a certain time

…when we stop dreaming
…when we stop hoping
…when we stop the pain
