Veiled

Eyes that are empty
As I look in the bottom of the glass
The color of sky blue
Behind fearful and sad
Underneath, a mystery
And I don't have a clue
What to do...

Embers burn and sparkle
Into the night quietly waking
Neon drawing me nearer
The bar room peers as I enter
Slipping away in my silence

Calling, whispering, through life
In the midst of far aways, a social bite
Laying upon the ground, 
knowing once I would've fought
Down for the count, yet a breath caught
And you just don't seem to understand
Everything that I am
If you could just see
This part of me that hides in me
If you could be there
but you act like I'm a strangeness to your world
and I breathe the thin air
Between us
~~Distance~~

Sobering moments
Though only my faith remains strong
What makes this lonely road so long?
Pushing down the pain 
As I go it alone

Then you beg to differ
Me and Jimmy B-Alone with my thougts on the weekend
The drinks get stiffer
Last call, slow dance, romance?
Only litarally
If you could only see
There's a better part of me hiding in me

And tonight my eyes are empty 
as I look at the bottom of my glass
It's closing time
as I stagger to the sidewalk
Taxi driver, silent
my ears still ringing from the wah baby and amps I was into
and one more night  tears  fall on my pillow; sultry

Tomorrow billowing clouds await from heaven's pleasantries
And somehow I need not care
that you don't see
What I could be
If I could feel the part of me again 
that hides deeply behind me
In this silence

    This is something I can painfully relate to. Your wordflow & ambience in this writing was elegant, thru its sadness & reflections.
