Edgar John Jackson

Abruptly

Hurt me severely
With frozen words before you go
Don’t let me alive
Because I won’t know
How to survive
By living without you
And perfectly
It will be my end
If I don’t defend
What I’ve felt for you…

I still envision
One more night with you
But nothing’s been the same
‘Coz I am forgetting my name
And when I watch television
All the starring is like you
And I string out our memories
To write other stories
Where I love you…


I’m twisting in my bed
‘Coz love controls my head
And almost insane
My heart’s pounding
For this pain
And your voice is sounding
So abruptly
That I run beyond compare
But when I’m there
So ominously
You’re everywhere
And I can’t compensate
For my own fate…


Abruptly
Running to your door
To recover what we were before
Abruptly
With the slamming of your door
I was history
While you are still my glory
But like unbridled horses run
Abandoned
I look for the sun
To light my life
‘Coz any clasp over me
Is like a knife…

My days
Ain’t outta the blue
My ways
Are directly
Where you are
There ain’t a clue
Where I can escape slowly
But you come running
Like a shooting star
When I am forgetting
Your love takes me over from afar
Abruptly…
