My tears are bitter and warm
They carry so much weight but take no form
The pain and anguish in my heart never growing old
Every heart beat at a split of a second turning cold
I seem to hear voices in my head in the presence of my silence,
I look around for some answers just to see a bit of reminiscence,
The minute I close my eyes I'm introduced to a different world,
My heart thudding, it feels like its the end of the road.
I call on you to hear me out,
My words have eroded, this time no lie can bail me out,
The future is bleak, the past is the only thing I have now,
Only if time was tangible, I would turn the clock around.
For every second that I have I reserve for good use,
For every word through my tongue I speak nothing but the truth.
I'm widowed to every moment I lost without you,
My tears embracing every heartache I felt when I lost you,
Now I'm standing alone wondering what to do to have you,
The truth is hard to swallow when the fact states that I can't have you,
