I've been writing for days,
but my words can only travel so far.
Ebb and flow for all of us.
But I'm stuck here in the in between.
If only they meant more when said.
Not fall to the floor, shattered and left there to wither away.
Time just keeps passing us by.
Help me depart this endless cycle.
Of wishing and wanting, but failing.
The hourglass comes to a stop, just like my dreams.
The only escape is an endless sleep.
Slipped through my fingers, like water down the drain.
This road leads to nothing, path unlit, into darkness.
Take your hands into mine, fingers intertwined.
I can make this with you, by my side.
(I can make this with you, by my side.)
Just please, oh please, don't turn your back on me.
