Where Is The Blame

                                                   Where is the blame...
                                        When teardops fell just the same...

                                           Pointing fingers in the darkness...
                                          Only spreads a sheet of sadness...

                                    I never left, only walked backwards away...
                                Then you were small like a flower of yesterday...

                                  We faded like to two sunsets across one sky...
                          We both pushed tomorrow away as hard as we can try...
                           The tide of pain washed in and pulled us far out to sea...
                   Where we tumbled and drowned in a love that wasn't meant to be...

                               I could stand now and say I'm sorry till the end of time...
                         But you deserved more then a partime lover who only rhymes...

                                                      Where is the blame...
                                                        We both can see...
                                       Yesterday and today it's always on me...

                                                 ~dedicated to an old friend~

    oh, this must be one i saw at a blog of yours. It seems familiar but I have no comment below here. this one makes me really want to know the story behind it. So sad when friendships fade. I think this must have been a girlfriend and an important one!

    This is good, but sad. What is gone - it's gone and it won't be back and it does - it won't be the same. If it's for the contest- it's a good one. Lucilla
