I Miss You
I walked past your flat today and almost knocked on the door.
I thought I heard your voice and hoped to turn to see your face.
I almost called you on the phone,
then remembered you would not pick up at all.
I went to the old bridge by the river
and sat down alone in the sun.
A feeling of sorrow washed over me
and knowing that we would never play in the river again
made the sorrow stick.
How I miss you and all we did.
How I long for your jokes
and how you'd pick on me.
You showed me how to juggle.
To stand that little bit longer,
to wait and...
I am the fire that in your soul the angry words you spite out
at a fool.
The wrongful deeds that you saw in to the earth, the Apple that eve took that made Adam fall.
The hateful eyes in the darkness that you seek and I will not back down not at all.
You can not control me so why do you try, wasting time and space in a blink of a eye.
I am the darkness the willing employee that happy to feel the fears of your mind the devil in a black satin dress.
