This

October 26, 2010

Your tears are drying on my shoulder
Night and day are getting colder
Tears are shed for what has passed
In fools dreams this time can last.

You lay your head on my back
Hoping I will finally crack.
A single kiss planted on my spine
To let me know you are mine

Cold hard stare from tear glazed eyes
In this moment I am paralyzed
Thoughts run deep to the jungle floor
So much emotion coming in the door

All this anger and all this fright
All this sorrow and all this might
All this for three little words,
I love you, and it’s not absurd.
