Time to Part...

Every passing day and you're betrayed by your lips
Its always the smallest detail but it always slips
Perhaps someone lesser might've taken long to know
But I love you too much and I've never needed you to show
Whats on your mind and worse, whats buried in your heart
I've always been able to tell, even when we've been far apart
So long before you'll know, I'd have prepared to part ways
Long before you give me the tears, I'd have done my crying under the greys
Consider this my farewell, my thank you for journeying with me
Perhaps another age, another time, another life...but right now, its time you set me free....

It has been a long time...and to be honest, I haven't missed writing as much as I thought I would have and neither has the poet in me died as I thought he might. There are still a million rhymes running through this mind and they just dont let up. And just occasionally, one of them escapes out.
Not among my best, not by far but it's the only one that was resilient enough to escape and so be deserving enough to be here and now. 

I was young
I was loved
But I wasn't happy in what I had
I was foolish
I was lost
And I thought I needed more to make me glad
Maybe chance
Maybe luck
Maybe something else will take me back
Maybe me
Maybe her
Maybe someday one of us will understand what we lack
Oh I think
Oh I feel
Oh I know I've been wrong
Oh I care
Oh I know
Oh I have missed you way too long
Come away
Come again
Come let me try and get it right
Come back
Come here
Come to me in more than just my dreams at night
And even now
And even then
And even more so when we're far apart
And till now
And till then
And till you get here I'll be nursing my heart
I love you
I love you
And I'm sorry I havent said it in as many words
I love you
I love you
And I'm hoping, someday, more than I've said, you would've heard...

(I just lost myself in Robbie Williams' Shes the One...loosely based on its tune...)
