105 ~ All Over You

I knew the minute you
walked away, it was over.
That minute we turned our
backs on each other, forever.

I can never return to that time.
I can not pretend to be blind.
I don’t want to just be friends,
now I’m screaming into the wind.

Once we seemed to be one,
made of two.
But that’s all over now,
and I’m all over you.

Now here I sit, searching
for the words to our song,
outside and it’s raining,
but I am glad you’re gone.

So smears the ink of my dream,
off the page and into stream.
Floats away far from me,
which is the way I want it to be.

Once we seemed to be one,
made of two.
But that’s all over now,
and I’m all over you.

Feelings have been washed away,
now I’m refreshed and new.
I can go on to love again
without thinking of you.

When I remember that day,
it was you that turned away.
You said you needed some space,
can you still look yourself in the face?

Once we seemed to be one,
made of two.
But that’s all over now,
and I’m all over you.
