The Diner in The Trees

I wish to fade to black

Awake to find it was a dream

Each new day begins, leaving more space in-between

Where I am, where I want to be

Turning the clocks back is not enough for me

I plead to turn back all the years

Return to a time when she was mine and I was hers

Each memory, a burr in my eye

A pain that I deserve for my part played in the lie

Her heart screamed for frequency

I took to drugs, silence and secrecy

Burning lightbulbs and bridges

Three years passed

Through the haze, I listed

When I regained sense

She appeared, but just for a moment

The favour returned

Four more years passed

I remain with the hurt
