Since you’ve been gone

Since you’ve been gone

Life was less pleasant since you’ve been gone.
The days pass me by like a walking shadow
And the nights feel long and cold.
Time stands still and I’m walking in slow motion.
You were too good for this, so you left this jar of flies.
I’m here accepting my fate.
Wanting you to come back.
But Im just one;
One of a million flies all imprisoned in a jar.
That’s definitely too small for everyone to live their life the way they want.
And the nights pass me by long and cold
But the days leave a new burn.
Just another scar on my skin
Since you’ve been gone

And I’m counting each single new one


Ok I’m new on steemit and don’t know if I did everything right to participate in this writing contest but I guess I’ll find out soon xD


So much emotion in such succinct lines. The imagery comes across so well, the clinging cold of the shadow marking your day. I love the jar of flies analogy, buzzing around, too enclosed to really fly. Beautiful <3

Thank you very much. I got the image from an Alice In Chains album cover and did some research. They made an experiment in school to study the effects of overpopulation. To watch the flies die as a kid had some impact on the singer

Oh jeez, that sounds like quite the class project, I suspect that it would seriously affect how someone valued life. I have never really listened to Alice In Chains, give me a good song to start :)

Hm they are pretty depressing to listen to so be warned xD but u can listen to the song „down in a hole“

Ooo yeah! I will listen to this tonight, I need things that are less upbeat if I have any hope of sitting down and getting stuff done so depressing may be just what i'm after :)

Still not sure if it’s the right song xD but don’t know your taste in music

These words were saddening but simply beautiful.

Chic article. I learned a lot of new things. I signed up and voted. I will be glad to mutual subscription))))
