Wishing you were

here

The dark caverns

the lost luster of

my eyes

Wishing you could

see

The love for you

within

but now the acid

rain

begins.

I wish it wouldn't

fall

From the black centers of

my eyes

from those dark abysmal

I wish it wouldn't

burn

and sting like a

as it cuts down my

skin

and slowly drains my

life.

I am all alone

dwelling in the

night

in my ever-present

sorrow

and my agonizing

fright

Wishing you were here

NOW

longing for your

face

still yearning for your

lips

and your breath-taking

embrace

if you were here

my angel

no acid rain would

fall

but when the skies are

clear

was it....

Still...

it rings, a hollow

call
