I can taste the venom in your words
A sound I pretend I never heard
As the morning sun breaks the day
We stand together at the beginning
But we play a game only one is winning
Then at the end, you lose your way

The arrival of a strange emotion,
You throw a heart into the ocean,
And laugh though you know not why
The reason is changing seasons into winterís cold
Here on the precipice I can no longer hold
But drop, as a tear forms in your eye

The most frightening thing of all
Is that I was starting to fall
When you looked my way
Blindness clears and leaves recognition
Lovers try to ignore their condition
As the setting sun ends the day

I enjoyed this piece. Awareness, whether arriving early or late, is often a bitter pill to swallow, and you've expressed that very well here.
