A World Away…

It isn’t all the time

You can steal this heart

But a captive to your smile

It remains.

All the same, all these years

In a prison of memories

In a prison of broken promises

And broken dreams

That I still secretly wish will

Come true.

It is you.

Forever etched into the walls of my heart

You pull at strings I never knew existed,

You keep me twisted.

Stuck in your kiss… the same one from that first time

Over a decade gone and still I’m here

Free but enslaved

Free and enraged

 

Mostly because

I crave something tangible

Simple, like a hand to hold

Easy, like for you to know…that…

I Still Love You.

 

I’m banking on fantasies

Fixated on niceties

That I play over in my mind’s eye

The eye that I wish were blind.

It is in my nature to believe

And I live somewhere in between …

On this cloud, in a limbo, where you

Come back to me.

 

You show that you love me too,

Doubt does not live here, within these

Walls anymore… but

Time, time is having its way with us

Time is testing our days

But this sand is infinite… as is this love…

As is this trust.

No matter the distance,

No matter the cost.

All of this is yours.

 

I  just crave something tangible

Simple, like a hand to hold

Easy, like for you to know…that…

I Still Love You.
