I might pretend
That I have moved on
That I am alright
That there’s still some love left in me
That yours was no true love.
But while I stray deep into an abyss of pretense
My footprints sink deep into the black snow
So it may lead me back to you.
I listen to the sound of my heart crack
In spasms like isolated thunderbolts
Each time I stumble on those love melodies
That injected beauty into our hearts
And the glow of love in your eyes
Still blinds me today.
I don’t know how to fill up this void
I don’t know how to walk without having to hold your hand
I languish in this dream that I can’t wake up from.
You are here today.
You are not here today.
Because time has since stopped.
Destroying our yesterday
And placing tomorrow in uncertainty.
If I wake tomorrow and the clocks chirm back on
I will face the world with renewed vigor
With burning flames of love
But as for now I am curled up
In the fragments of my broken heart.
