And an abyss that had no light
I never would have limped your way for your helping hand
I strutted like a fool who thought sh.e knew it all
Like a typical teenager with a rebellion of some sort,
Thinking I knew what love was, what you were.
And then I grew up to fall on my face
Within the words you wrote and the tears I spilled
To realize that love is often pain
Disguised with sweet words and honeyed memories.
If I knew that you had a life of your own and strung me along
Into your little web with lies and fairytales,
I never would have turned back around… twice… thrice…
All the time.
Where are you when I want you to oblige?
What are you doing when I need you to see
The light that’s fading before our eyes?
And so I think I’ll sit alone for a while
To find my life again, without you.
I’ll sit alone for a while
So I can find my love for you.
