I’ve swallowed up a thought.
And tried to give up on it.
It became what I sought.
Back down that well I’d seek for it.
Which thought is it I sought?
As memories appear before me.
Bad thoughts must now be fought.
Why did I look inside of me?
I held disappointment in my eye.
It was a tear that would not die.
I could blink…
but I think why…
As that teardrop becomes a cry.
I sat upon the ledge of tomorrow.
And watched yesterday run away.
No wave for parting sorrow.
Just another today.
I look down between my feet.
Deep down inside of me.
Past the sight of you and me.
And all my other fallen dreams.
I crept up upon a whisper. And saw the words disappear.
They seemed to run from me. These words inside of me.
I finally caught a word. A word, what a word.
The word was actually ‘word.’ And I got what I deserved.
No endings were found tonight. I kicked the period of a run on in flight.
You might think it’s right. But a single word is never right.
You never love someone fully right away.
I love you more and more each day.
Those that fall into love, fall out of love.
And then move on from love.
We seem to find it each day.
Even if we have to make it some days.
That’s real love to me.
I could never count the tears in your eyes. How often I’ve made you cry, how many times I’ve left you standing saying why. All for a few moments of disguise, let me cover up your eyes.
I’ll never be what you want me to be, but as long as you don’t see, there is nothing to see.
See these tears falling from your eyes, they are just lies.
Lost moments of you and I.
