Fallen From Despair

Fallen From Despair

A Poem by Sheik

A depressed girl puts all her hope in a boy she loves to save her from the dark world she is trapped in.


Verse 1

For such a long time

I have longed for

A way to free myself,

And yet I now find

I can see no more

The darkness I’ve known so well.


Verse 2

Looking through these eyes,

Everything’s glassy

As the sun starts to set.

Then I start to cry

Tears I’ll never need,

Raining down where they shall rest.


Verse 3

In a dream last night

My sole guide was there,

Leading me to the door.

It opens to light

Before we enter

Onto the pearl white floor.



Have I fallen from despair

Into this new world

Where all is what it seems?

Life had been a lying mirror

Until I was turned

Back into the real me.



Are you still there my friend?

I have returned to you.

Please help me to understand.

For you showed me the truth.



I left despair

Just to come here,

My friend.

the deeper meaning, maybe she's alone and sad then she gets better but with pills, or cutting so she wonders if she's really better or if it's just a trick, the glassy could easily be tears, or it could be that she sees the world as a reflection, backwards and twisted.

"Glassy" could mean that it looks like looking through glass, everything is distorted; everything looks different, like there is a sheet of glass in front of you. The deeper meaning is that there is always a way out of things I believe. Have you sung this song or just made the lyrics?

I think the speaker uses glassy as a symbol for tears. When a person usually cries their vision is similar to looking through glass.
