With love in my heart, I waited for you
The road where you left me shattered
Is still moist with tears I wept all the while
Winds still carry my scent as they blow over
Is that what got you back? For me?
Blank as a white sheet you stand now
With no trace of my memories on you
Those hollow eyes haunting me still
Following me from the moment I saw you
Did my gaze follow you? Haunt you?
My eyes have not slept since that day
Wide open, filled with hope of your return
You are here, where I can touch you
But something pulls me away, far from you
What is it? Can you see it?
I feel a slap, painful but very soothing
Something jolts me, sad but real
I am distanced from you, running away
He has woken up, I must make a move…
Who is it? Why is he disturbing us?
That’s my self-respect, telling me…
“You deserve better”
