THE NIGHT YOU BADE ME BYE

I walked into my room
Having staggered down the street
Unsettled and dejected
As though in a trance
The world crumbled at my feet

A place that used to be too small for us
Now became the whole world to me
As I lay there in the silence
I could hear the steps of my own shadow
It was so grieved it had to part

I could neither eat nor drink
My throat hurt more than a sore
My tongue was heavy, it couldn’t speak for me
Perhaps someone could’ve heard
And told me all would be well

I wanted to sleep and never be awoken
For amnesia denied me my request
The night seemed longer than the years we’d spent
I did cry an ocean
Only my eyes could tell

 

THEY BUILT IN VAIN
