I Stand Alone


One day my whole world changed
I walked in your room, and in your eyes gazed

i saw your light, your power within
all of the sudden my frown changed to a grin

at ease we talked, i was honest for once
with you as my ears, caged feelings finally pronounced

you didn't speak but said so much
i could feel your understanding; like someone cared for once

then you conveyed how your felt, i knew it was real
i next took attention to your genuine sex appeal

understanding why makes the pain come to ease
but thick glass between us is an unfair tease

our thoughts think as one; each other we crave
but now were separated, the system has you enslaved

two times a week is never enough time
to connect with your soul and have you tell me your mine

with your behind bars, i stand alone once again
just know in your heart I'm waiting for our new life to begin
