I wandered through the darkness,
My eyes blinded, my sight hindered,
My ears deafened, my hearing mangled,
My hands restricted, my touch mired,
My beating heart a slow painful death died,
As my mind traveled, traverse the maze,
Through eternal time and endless space,
Unlocking the treasure chest with a key,
Unlocking within the memories of you and me.
All this time a question lingers,
Where did it go wrong?
When I broke your heart with lies,
Or when I the brutal truth,
That put between us, a distance of miles.
Yet, even now my mind is clear,
On the memories I hold so dear,
So clearly it is within me,
The memories of you and me.
Without my eyes I can still see,
Your beauty as you smiled at me,
Without my ears I can still hear,
Your gleeful laughter ringing near,
Without my hands I can still touch,
Your delicate curves which I love so much,
Without my heart I can still feel,
How deep my love for you is still.
With honeyed lies I shielded you,
Protected you without your knowing,
With brutal truth I shattered you,
Your trust in me before my eyes shattering.
Now we are but two,
Lost souls wandering anew,
You moved on with strength I admired,
For me, it was only escape I desired.
And, escape I did…
