Tony’s Note: Heartrending.
He is looking at me, or not me, but,
The glittering glass castle
He built inside me
And two months later
I am bandaging your wounds
Like a mother-
Who rolled over her newborn in the night-
I am crumpled in you
I must admit how rude it is that you ignore me all the time.
You just skip along your merry way
Never looking back for a second.
I bet that the only time you’ll even notice I was there is when I’m gone.
What would you do?
What would you do if I disappeared?
If I let you walk this world alone?
Would you float away into space.
You would have nothing of real substance holding you back.
The only thing that could ever weigh you down is the gravity of your own mistakes.
So what of you wake up one day and I am gone
And the whole world is upside-down?
Will you remember me then?
Will you remember that it was me who kept you here?
That it was ME who you fell down to when your burdens were too heavy.
Remember that when you are looking for someone to carry your weight.
Because one day
I won’t be there.
Nothing will ever hold you back again.
I don’t think I’ve needed you more than right now.
I don’t understand the world, people, or how
They can be so blind to those in need
Or how I can lose faith in things I believed.
In moments and feelings you thought you could trust
What if you learned it was all for naught.
Or when someone you once called a friend
Is no longer the same in the end
Honey, I pray, I plead, will you come tonight?
Oh my love,
My Dearest Someone,
Do you think we’ve met before?
Did I see your face and think nothing more?
Or did you sit and talk with me?
Did I listen carefully
To every word that you said, every laugh we shared?
Did you know that I truly cared?
Or perhaps we simply passed each other by.
Did I even meet your eye?
I pray that you will come with all my might.
But for right now,
My Dearest Someone,
Tonight I think about all the things that made me love you.
You are the only person who can get me mad enough to actually lose my cool.
You are the only person who can get away with saying the wrong things at the right moment.
You come to me when the others didn’t understand your way of thinking.
