come home partner

I noticed you there lost in all this dreariness I'd catered to your morbid since of norm unable to notice a young mother her hungry family pleasantly destined to survive a war gone bad a broken time where peace hid for cover beneath a darkened underpass that dark place where suicide played aimlessly in her torn mind withered so throughout thee sharecroppers haste tampered soul brilliant heart glowing mind looking up to your eyes for guidance that just wasn't there shock waves of fear chills of the night time played out during daylight sorted memories chatting harsh truths an yet survival was being judged escape from illness was being challenge through a house of cards lessons tainted gravity wasted above doubt I noticed you way off into the dimness counting naught faceless pout leading grievances tempting fate the impossible task folded beyond staying alive we're taught never to look back come home survive
