Anytime

Written by: Darcel Sharp

Can you see me?
Can you read the article that is my face, my mood?
I'm morning for the partial creator that has left me wounded. A artery cut has no path to death like the silhouette in the distance I no longer see. 

Do I ever cross your mind, ANYTIME?

I don’t need gifts to shower me for the apologies and guilt immersed in you. 
I shower daily to cleanse me of your stank as it is.  But for once can I sulk in a tub of your commitment?
I am half of you.... Your blood flows through me like the distance that is measured by inches to feet. 
I just wanna be next to you, do you wanna be next to me?

Do I ever cross your mind, ANYTIME?

I will always keep your picture in a frame to remind me of the strength that I hold. 
The strength that allows me to hold fast to a decision acted upon and not told. 
I miss you and I wanna miss the times that we have and haven't shared.
Events desperately asking to be compared. 

Do I ever cross your mind, ANYTIME?

My dreams no longer linger at night. I find myself sleep walking and daydreaming to keep a relationship of the hope of us. 
Tears will stop and that pipe dream will turn to rust. 
Dad..... 
Mom......
I’m just a kid.....

ANYTIME!
