Go For a Walk

by Illiteratty



good advice for after splitting up!


Go For a Walk Outside

There’s a reason why you can’t sleep at dawn
It’s not because the birds are singing
It’s this loneliness that won’t leave you alone
& the silence inside you ringing

Beside you in the bed’s a gaping hole
You want to fall into its yawning
& vanish in the darkness & the cold
Full of emptiness & longing

When you’re alone
& your heart’s like a hollow bone
You got no one to love
& you just wanna wail & moan
Have a nice cup of tea
It’ll make you feel better
Then go outside & get some air
If it’s cold put on a sweater

Go for a walk outside
If it’s a sunny day don’t you hide indoors
Go for a walk outside
& all the pleasures of the daylight can be yours
Any time you want ‘em
Any time at all
