Far away in mind but close in heart
The time well spent is more than I could need
Yet I’m still feeling the tears I left on your shirt
The bedside behind me leaves me nothing but cold feet
Your stare in dull adoration is numbing
The monotone blue dusk comforting as I hurt inside
Searching into them to find something
Something I can confide in
But I’ve already drowned myself in the pools of your arms that I call home
Sweet words that I love to hear at night
Yet daylight holds no attitude of reaction or response
Left in the dark in effortless wiping
Rolled in waves of aftertaste songs of romance
All that’s noticed is overjoy and dismal
Trapped in my own head of words you use to say
What happened before I took the fall?
Before the leaves on the trees began to sway
No care now if the weeds in the garden of sunflowers are overgrown
For you to smile with affection
Instead of filling it in with mild assurance
Cutting efforts down in deduction
When did I start feeling such an underachiever
in your wake?
“You wouldn’t care” is top of my vocabulary list
Actions speak louder than words to a degree
Interesting left unimpressed
The passion doesn't burn as bright as it use to be
Candles in your room now give the only bit of colour to my fading heart
Would you care for so long?
Will you notice the fading grins?
When will you note if the lines from my lips are withdrawn?
Would you care if your world stopped spinning?
How long would it take to notice the moon is missing from its stars?
Or how the beats have soften to the gray
Only shade you brought of pink with you was to my cheeks and ears
Can you recall the times I was too shy to meet halfway?
Do you see my hazel gaze and pale hands go unmarked?
Sharing is too meaningless when asked
No trouble to keep the thoughts down my throat
I’ll just go to fill up my heart of glass
Mind the nail stuck on my chest
On my ribcage is a note
