"Nowhere Feet"

by Shayne Edwin Pruett

--

I found your love in a music box,

The song was sweet like apple green.

I came upon your face last night,

In what was certainly a dream.

A shiny light and something sweet,

Something swept me off my feet,

Regardless of the heartless fact,

That you and I would never meet.

A heavy heart is my reward,

For seeing you there on the floor.

I think out loud with nothing more,

Than intentions of sleeping on the shore.

And I would be anything for you,

To make you smile a song so sweet.

But these heart strings will fall on nothing,

But deaf ears, closed eyes, and nowhere feet.
