Wasted Days

I wish I was temporarily blind
So I could better picute your face in my mind
Stab these eyes out if I'd never see you
This heart it bleeds red, but it feels blue.

Wasting Hours and Days
Endless Ink upon an endless Page
Until you return

Lay on back and gaze at the stars
Feels like you here, I know that you're far
I wonder if you stare up at then too
These heavenly bodies remind me of you

Wasting Hours and Days
Endless Ink upon an endless Page
Until you return

I sit here thinking in meter and rhyme
Trying to capture a place and a time
Words prove so useless to my ears
They cannot convey hopes, dreams and fears.

Wasting Hours and Days
Endless Ink upon an endless Page
Until you return

Now I'm dreaming of life in the past
Hoping that all these things can last
Faking a smile, play this role I've been cast.

Pretending that I want to be home
Frustrating healing broken bones
Do they see through it, could they know
That I feel so alone....

Wasting Hours and Days
Endless Ink upon an endless Page
Wasting Hours and Days
Endless Ink upon an endless Page
Wasting Hours and Days
Until you return

When will you return?
