Did We Say Goodbye

Did we ever say goodby?
Or did we just walk away?
Like nothing really matters
to our hearts anyway?
I’ll pretend if you’d like me too
Pretend that I just don’t feel the pain
But honey, I feel the same.

I’ll be walking down the street
just thinking about my feet
But not about you, no no
I suppose that’s the way it’s got to be

But every once in a while
I catch a glimpse of myself
alone, all alone, in the windowpane.
That’s when I think about you, again.

And I think…

Did we ever say goodby?
Or did we just walk away?
Like nothing really matters
to our hearts anyway?
If you need me to I’ll pretend
I don’t feel the pain
But darling, I do.

There’s just one thing
you gotta know my heart sings
yeah, ’cause I love you
Yes I do.
I love you.

Loveless

I searched and searched – never found it there …
Hiding ‘midst my drowning loneliness – despair –
believing not my heart – more that somewhere
lived a part of my soul less burdened – less aware.

And lo – never finding itself within –
lurking deeply – hidden – like sin –
announcing only loves’ absence begins
to darken my souls’ longing – tip to brim.

She filled my empty space a moment or two –
until realizing it wasn’t true – her love –
or attempt to feign that which can not –
nor may ever be manufactured by whim.

Love is like a rose – nature’s surprise –
Which either is – or isn’t.
Pity we who can only see –
but never smell it’s truest beauty –

Or to bloody ourselves upon it’s stem
while others drink its petals’ dew…
If only I could have found that for you….
My dear lost darling, love is but a ruse.
