Night time was a favorite;
Time for land of flowing dreams
Early mornings filled with promise,
Sunlit fields of golden green
I thought you’d come to save me;
But my ‘savior’ you were not
The pleasures of a smile which-
Would emerge because of mine
That glow inside your eyes;
You remember how they sparked?
I do recall it very well;
Inside my soul it’s all engraved
But for you it’s not the same;
I can feel it, know its depth
Sleepless nights, dreading light
Are not for you though, you shall know
No, lonely I have been-
In your presence, through your lack
You just came so you could leave
Endless tales of misbelief
I just was and I have been-
For countless eras, on my own
But what’s this anger you behold?
Frightened demons of galore!
Whose tail do you keep chasing?
Monstrous ghouls, forever more
They don’t love you, don’t you see?
You don’t know you, can’t you see?
I’m the one who showed you things
Which you’d never ever seen
I’m the one who made you feel-
Something new, as well as real
It’s okay though, loving friend;
Our paths just had to cross
No strings attached and no harm done;
In this land of merging hearts
Was just a dream, only a dream;
All we thought there was, was not!
It’s time to see, it’s time to be:
The distance which there is
