Between the lines, I blur,
I search for something I've lost.
Do you even wonder
if I'm all right?

Just before you feel
night steal away your heart,
I hope you remember
the way I used to look at you.
Before I discovered that
heroes fall and lines divide,
around my eyes that quest
like a tongue
that no longer wants me.

Wonder if you ever think about
the way I'd tell you everything
with a smile.
You held my hand
and my head a little while,
as we snuck into
the morning after.

I know that I deserve so much better,
but I do not know
how you sleep at night.
reflecting on my past :)

That... that I rather like, and to steal the line from the last poster there's this sensation of bitter sweet running through the whole thing. I like the fact that the end's such a sudden cut off as well, or at least it was in my head when I read it, gives the feeling of the reflection being wrapped up in some way. If that makes sense...

yeah it's good that you read it that way :) it was definitely written in a mood of acceptance and resolution despite a residual feeling of sadness and loss with perpetually unrequited love
