"Breathe" (DDLC 4)

I watch you passing judgment
And barely remember to breathe
What happened to the peaceful

But your pain is real, believe it
Think it, say it, grieve

Don’t leave us disoriented
Don’t leave us with no room to grieve…

The agonizing hope and dream I’m sending
O’er this time we journey through

I, comfort you?
We travel alone, apart, as two
And the melancholy is no less true
For my clumsy attempts at cheer

But, tenacious here
I promise that I’ll stay near
Despite the pain that is perhaps more my fear
I’ll do what I can, mending

For I’ll count myself lucky
To count you in my family
Someone for whom I can sing

I started playing a visual novel called Doki Doki Literature Club on the…
