Since You're Gone

Diamond hard sunrise streams
I'm suspended in the candle wax residue of dreams
the sandman has been more than generous
and love like an open wound is my personal Everest
tell myself the summit is near
today
and every single day
since you're gone

Struck down on trying
in the dead heat of the night
oh I'm in too deep
the path is steep
understand the difference of scars and insight
hear the hollow sounds of my footsteps at dawn
since you're gone

Words fail
daylight rings hollow in my eyes
fare thee well
my love
fare the well
your weather still clings to my lawn
like eyelash tears
since you're gone
since you've disappeared
everything feels so tired and lonely here
without you
without you

Diamond clear daylight shines
I'm suspended in the webbing of my own design
a swallow in the dark comes on like a train
and love like a broken smile hurts just like autumn rain
promised you I would change
last night
and every damn night
since you're gone

Struck dead on flying
in the dead cold of the day
oh I'm in too deep
the path is steep
understand the difference of work and play
hear the hollow sound of my heartbeat at dawn
since you're gone

Diamond soft sunset burns
I'm suspended in the dizzying nighttime blur
it clings to me in the deafening silence
and love like a bloody bandage was my first offense
convince my heart the pain will ease
tomorrow
and every day from now on
since you're gone
since you're gone
you're gone
gone

your weather still clings to my lawn
like eyelash tears
since you're gone

You are all heart and soul
And pure poetry in motion.

you have captured the pain and emptiness of a lost love vividly...I felt it and relived it through your words...
Intensely written....
