Shadows

Time and attention is true

love was never the answer

yet, I was tossed by the wayside

dropped on the side of the road.

I am here, stranded,

looking at the vast nothingness

waiting on someone else.

I’ll spend my entire life

looking for the very one

drawing eyes up into to eyes

taking away this nothingness

stripping away my ache.

I want the smell of perfume

to step forward and kiss my lips

I’ll sign whatever contract,

as long as you promise me now

you’ll stay and whisper.

We can find ourselves

locked in that ancient dance

always going back forth

my hand to the small of your back

you leading us forward.

Be the superstar I’ve come to expect

be the one I’ve imagined

I can’t tell you

how many times I’ve looked back

hoping you were in the shadows

looking to sweep me up.
