WAITING FOR YOU

Like acid falling on me, my skin does burn
As I wait everyday for you to return
The minutes seem like years but I’ll never run
I’ll wait for you till I become ashes in an urn

I get dressed everyday in my Sunday’s best
Thinking today I’ll see you and then rest
These tired eyes of mine and these bones fragile
But you don’t grace me with your presence, even for a while

I cut myself to pieces and gifted them all to you
I sacrificed all at the altar of love, you know it’s true
I tried to be sensitive and always be there for you
But in that you saw possessiveness and my obsession for you

Now where do I go? Should I turn my back on you?
You think that I cling, when I show my love for you
How can I be in love and not express it in all its hues
Should I just stand around like a dead statue?

I seem insignificant to you, from your perch proud
I am just another person, a face in the crowd
Trying hard to get your attention, competing with those around you
Destined to die loveless, destined to fall through

But I am a fool and I will wait, till sets my life’s sun
My eyes just a dead shadow of what once did burn
I’ll wait till my soul goes back to where its journey had begun
I’ll wait for you till I become ashes in an urn
