After All These Years
I can’t see your eyes in a darkened room.
I can’t see you leave, but I know it’s too soon.
I can’t hear your face, I can’t touch your soul,
But if I could see, I’d gain on my goal.
Somehow, oh somehow, I know you’re still there
Whispering into my ear everything,
……….everything I’ve always wanted to hear.
The lies feel soft to me,
……….like warm, fuzzy blankets to wrap me
……….and hide my eyes.
Inside, you whisper me your tantalizing lies
The lucidity of yesterday being a dead dream
Hide me inside your web of deception.
Hold me upon every dripping word.
After all these years, you are what you’ve been.
