When I look at you, you are all I see,
everything else is lost,
for that very short time when our eyes meet,
the world is overcast,
by clouds of darkness and swirls of colour,
by sounds so muffled, so loud, yet unclear,
by feelings, felt, so immense and so strong,
yet I know that right here is where I belong.
I cannot see the busy streets
full of people passing by,
I cannot see the birds that fly
high up in this sky.
When we touch it is only you I feel,
there is nothing else around,
just you, just me, just us, just we,
not a movement, nor a sound.
I rest my head upon your shoulder,
I hear you take a breath,
I shut my eyes, I hold you tight,
we stand here breast to breast.
But as I hold, things start to change,
the world is flying back,
I can see past your bogus smile,
your pedestal starts to crack.
The swirls which clouded up my mind
are starting to disappear,
as I see the world in this new light,
I do not want you here!
The pain you caused; the tears I cried,
went un-noticed for too long,
I see that bird, in this nights sky,
he sings a different song,
a song of hurt, sadness and despair,
my heart, it is throbbing, it is so hard to bear.
where now? What direction; turn back or go on,
neither will let my feelings be gone.
I love you more than I could ever love myself
but will miss you less as time goes by
that bird that was our love has stopped flying;
he is tired and ready to die.
