I hear you're doing better now since the night one year ago.
A Christmas present; a last resort.
So much of me on show.
I fell for you like a falling plane with a captain who accepts his fate.
The call he won't make to his wife, "don't remember me so drained of life".
This is the end, I regret. Because the ties that bind us there bend but don't break. Understand, what's in your hand is a goodbye too sad to send.
So sleep in spite, breaks my heart that you were right.
I braved the night, I heard your news.
Guess what you never own is the worst to lose?
A feeling I've not held since June.
I don't remember you this grey and blue.
No more will I lie waiting, praying for clarity to fill your mind.
Commiserating, embracing what dies in us while we are still alive.
And you were right.
