From The Other Side Of The Room

My first mistake
Was to smile at you
From the other side
Of the room
There you were
Like a great dark wing
The beginnings of
A great storm
And I knew
In an instant
That you would be trouble
And so it began
It was everything
That I had not wanted
Its was nice
It was everything
It was my undoing
And yet
It was the most
Beautiful thing
That I needed
So I fell in love
Over time
I allowed myself
To let go
Of al those inhibitions
And the fear
And now
Looking back
It was the best of times
It was the worst of times
It was timeless
And it was intensity
And poetic justice
Ah but like time
It never stands still
And the threads
Began to unwind
Torn apart by the wind
Faster than i could
Try to stop them
And then the wind
Became crazy
And the storm
Grew into a hurricane
And foolishly
I kept walking
Into the night
Believing you
Would be there
When the darkness fell
And I never saw
You were walking away
And so
Here is in little pieces
As all this comes to its end
And I stand alone
Once more
So much has gone by
And I know
It will never be
Never come again
And that breaks my heart
There is so little time
So my friend
I wish you all the hope
And all the peace
That you are searching for
Walking away
Is just another death
So ill love you
From a distance
Till the end of time
And yes
I do understand
As the planets
Go their way
Just know that
I will never forget.
