Move back a bit and let me breathe
You need not be so near
Must you crowd my aura so?
There’s plenty room in here
That feeling of entrapment all about
Surrounded yet all alone
Overcome with the need to panic
How long will this go on?
A thousand miles away in another land
Can you feel my presence near?
Is there any comfort for you within?
Do I quell your fear?
A cold, dark void far beyond the earth
Silent, still, never a change
Will it ever be less than different?
Or will it always seem strange?
My heart needs room to beat again
To regain its loving sway
Must you rush forth so excited?
Can you not wait a day?
To heal my heart and again return
And trust love once again
Smiling with joy and happiness
Erasing tracks where tears have been
To move on to greener pastures
And find new dreams of hope
Overjoyed with a sense of adventure
And brave enough to cope
Little ticking moment going past
The ticking duration of regret
How long are we to endure it?
Does the clock ever reset?
To start the healing and mend the damage
Find new love down life lanes
Living real life in all its fullness
Free of all the hurts and pains
