When I Close My Eyes

When I Close My Eyes

A Poem by Harley (arbiter)


When I close my eyes
My sight runs away
And my mind runs wild

Visions of you
And me
Still loving
And holding our child

Hopes of a family
Dreams of what we could be
Buried and abandoned

Buried and abandoned
I still visit their grave

I still visit their grave
And I wonder

And I wonder
Do you ever visit too?
Do you ever miss me like I miss you

Words we said
How much we both bled
It can never take away your spot in my heart
My head
Good memories
Old melodies

I want you back
I want you back
But no

Never come back
Because I might just beg you to stay
Might just let everything be your way
Just to keep you with me for another day

Wish I knew the words to say
But nothing can ever make us ok


I should leave
These broken memories

I should leave

I just can't walk away

My love begs me to stay
My heart
My head
My feelings not dead
But yours are anyway
And I know
I know
Its my fault I should say

Cause it is
But I'm still sorry
I wish we
We're the way we used to be


I just can't walk away

I should but I just can't
Just can't walk away

Can't walk away

Can't walk a waaaay

Starts like a poem or letter and ends like a blues song .. such a tragic poem .. hope this person of this poem manages to piece themselves gently back together . Kudos

I am different. I am the unforgiven. I was born october 1997. I just write because I want to express my feelings in more ways than music and art. I'm just a guy trying to get out of the rain and sur.. more..
