The Ransom

Written by: Larry Belt

           Each time we're together
          we're a million miles apart.
You see me though I'm never really there.
             Lost in your thoughts
                              I 
                         slowly
                      disappear
          Fading like yesterday's sun
My words are but shadows, lost to the night
     Your thoughts become your prison
          Held captive by the silence
             I try to pay the ransom
                               A
                           Penny
                             For
                            Your
                        Thoughts
