I wait here, alone, and happy
Or should I say, at least quiet
Inflicting my pain on as few
as I can, love being what it is
A whispered lie in the darkness
Making me dream of oblivion,
Hope springing infernal, holding me
Here, in memories of you.
How can I say this to you, that I
Am afraid to be in love with you
As I am, a shell of a man
Broken like glass in the street
The unkindest cut of all I bring
A splinter in your minds eye
Blinded to the agony that comes
Bleeding into you, into you.
I turn away, passing beyond this
Forlorn, but better this way, I
Don't drag you down with me
Drowning in my own bitterness.
Closure comes only with darkness
Sunset wishes, twilight promise
There is an end to all of this
Or so I dream, or so I dream.
