When you were around…

When you were around, I’d wanted you to stop talking,
I’d wanted you to stop asking me what I needed, I’d wanted you to stop telling me what I ought to be doing,

I’d often shut myself into darkness, into a world away from your chatter,
Into a space where everything you asked of me, ceased to matter,

But now, I find the silence deafening,
Now, when you’ve disappeared into the sunset, into a universe galaxies away from mine, I find the darkness unnerving,

Now, when you’re nothing but a memory that lies encased in a frozen corner of my heart, I miss how you would sing me to sleep every dawn,
I miss how you would tick me off when I was wrong,

I can’t bring myself to live with the void you’ve left behind, I want to stir life into your pictures, create moments that’d set alight our aloofness, my animosity,

I want to bring you back into my world, so I can string my soul to yours, for eternity.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
