And you're filling up my lungs,
Where the oxygen should be;
Whilst I tremble in these tears –
Turmoil in a saltwater sea.
And you're flooding through my veins,
Where the blood is meant to flow;
Whilst I fall and fly down –
Into someplace I don't know.
I'm the rust to your glimmering gold,
Tarnishing and dimming your shine;
My hands are shaking, legs are quaking –
Struggling with fingertips to clutch what's mine.
I'm lost in the woods without a home,
Hiding whilst you soldier on;
I say 'I'm sorry', you say 'don't worry' –
What's done is dead and gone.
And you're shining in my eyes,
Where emotions often hide;
Whilst I blink and say a prayer –
Before I'm delivered by the tide.
And you're wrapped around my heart,
Where strumming heartstrings should play;
Whilst my mind drifts in the chaos –
The night consumes the day.
I whisper words I need to say,
Words you need to hear;
But you're pulling away, you won't stay –
You say 'it's too late now, my dear'.
Your eyes are hard, and forcibly so,
And your hands are cold, too rough;
A wall is erected, a guard elected –
I know. Love is not enough.
I wrote this quite randomly last night… I hope you like it. And reviews are more than welcome. :D
