Within the sanctuary walls
the people were sleeping soundly.
And every time the sun did fall
No more worries in their county.
Until one day
the peace had broke,
and the people
Now all their dreams
were distant gleams
of a time that
was once hopeful.
It lives in the tiniest
of spaces in my mind.
The gnawing notion
I cannot leave behind.
Wedged deep within
caught in the crevice
it reminds me
of my mistakes.
To shake it loose
would be no use.
It has found its place.
Looking back its hard to imagine
spending my time with anyone else.
We stopped just short of becoming tragic,
and now I have to learn to be by myself.
I know this is the best for the both of us.
So here we are, separate,
And here I am, desperate.
I thought that after all this time
That you would have faded from my mind.
I can no longer resist your mental intrusions
They pull me back into the illusion.
I expected to grow tired of these notions
But eons have passed and still I feel broken.
I miss you a lot,
and not a day goes by
where you are not in my thoughts.
You were the glimmer in my eye.
