When all the noise around me quiets,
and everyone has gone away,
I kissed you once, I remember,
so I think back on that day.
You brushed the hair away from my brow,
I had used to hide my eyes.
I bowed my head and turned my neck,
hoping you would not see the tears I had cried.
When you pulled away, I hit the floor,
knowing it would never be the same.
And I couldn’t even fathom,
the feeling of loneliness, that would soon be mine to gain.
Oh look, how these stars now taunt me,
the cracks in the moon crease up my skin.
I’m melting from the inside out,
thinking I’ll never see you again.
The sun boils my blood,
and festers my mood,
so I keep myself so busy,
that I won’t have time to notice how much has changed,
and how our love seems to always make me dizzy.
Will we be the lovers standing in the kitchen,
holding on for dear life?
Or strangers in the dead of night,
loving coldly, cutting through life like walking around like dull knives?
Hold me, where are you?
I’m reaching out, running through this maze.
Don’t leave me here,
you hear me screaming,
love me still,
even in our daze…..
