Impaired Vision

You love games when I’m not playing.
You once told me that you would give your life for me, but not your body.
With the promises made what else is there to be said.
Your joke was my dream & everything in between was middling at best.
Sometimes we do crazy things & dare to call it love.
Is the absence of clarity even worth seeing?
Because your sight brings me a new kind of pain.

Is this what you want for us?
Is this what you want for yourself?
To be honest, I could love you till my dying day.
But is it my love that you want to fall into?

Here is where I loved you, in the shadow of the day & in the light of the night.
As a star follows after the glow of the day, I followed after you for what good it did me.
Not for nothing, I’m just saying that I dreamed where you danced around & every move you made pushed me further out of view.
There’s always truth in silence & pain in delays, so I’m done waiting for you to say something for real.
I don’t want you to commit the sweetest sin, telling me everything under the Sun until I burn away like a bonfire made of all the tomorrows that’ll never come.

You can’t be so blind.
You can’t be so blind when you have it all.
To be honest, I could love you till my dying day.
I can’t be so careless.
I can’t be so careless when you have it all.

To be honest, I could love you till my dying day.
You can’t be so blind & I can’t be so careless.

NOTE:
This was written in May 2012, but I finally found the nerve to finish it tonight.
