The world passes me by
As I sit on this bench,
Lost in my inspiration.
Iím not concerned
With the goings-on around me--
Iím rapt in this new-found world
Where you have taken me,
A world in which
Yours is the only face in focus.
Though Iíve resigned myself to being aloof,
You have reintroduced peace;
You have reached my heart.
You dared;
You succeeded at stealing
My undivided attention.
I canít see any reason
To pay mind to the passing leaves now;
All is trivial
Except for my concentration
On your next move.
I know what I want to say,
But the words are captive in my mind.
I need to hear your voice;
Youíve been gone too long.
How could I be without
The sole rescuer of my muse?
I run down to the coast;
I donít bother to remove my shoes.
I try to fit the pieces together,
But I canít possibly put them back
Without the most indispensable one?
All my life,
All Iíve ever needed was the one
Who could recognize these symptoms,
Rule it a broken heart,
And begin the treatment,
En route to oblivion to the past.
So, my dearest,
Why arenít you beside me?
Why am I the only one here,
Watching the light turn
From red to green?


'cause I am hanging on every word you say, and, even if you don't want to speak tonight, that's alright, alright with me...

I have to agree with both of the above comments and also that I think this is your best work I've read thus far.  Wonderfully done.

This is a lovely, emotional piece.  The following lines are my favorite, I think.  So tender and sincere:

All Iíve ever needed was the one
Who could recognize these symptoms,
Rule it a broken heart,
And begin the treatment,

If you go a running down to the coast without removing your shoes, your feet are most assuredly going to get wet my friend.  Yeah, I know, so what if it happens YET AGAIN. LOL  
Beautiful write from you and so full of the yearning of a young heart in love.  You will find the green light I am sure and when you do, don't slow down for the yellows.  Hugs and a gentle kiss just for the holidays cause I felt like it.  

A life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will have no roses.
