Sliver Of Perfection


A Sliver of Perfection


You followed me into my stare

 My love was for you to share

But you just passed by

Just to leave me there


I wonder what was to be

Some sort of tragic ending?

Or was there more

Like a chance of love everlasting


I cover up my true emotions

I do not dare to speak of them

But when I do

You will never hear my words again


Drowning in the shallow end

Forgetting how to swim

Leaving less room

My lungs thirst for air again


My eyes follow something new

A new love potion to be stewed

A drink and then

You heart will beat through and through


A sliver of perfection

Seems like a false redemption

Though I thought it was you

Who could be the only exception
