JS (a sun bathed day in the middle of winter / the streets of imagination)

Before Time Goes Still

And I’m climbing a mountain
I think I’ve reached the peak
Just as I’m there
A rock comes loose
And I’m falling
Dreams and all
I thought I had you
You slipped from my grasp
Escaping
Running far away
Do I even know you anymore
A soft sprinkling of cocoa
Across my cheeks
Smearing with tears
Where did your smile go
Down the drain
With everything else
Spinning wildly away
That sparkle in your eye
Am I mistaken
Or is it faded to nothing
But a dull glaze
Seriousness
Has taken the crown
Ruling with a firm hand
Relentlessly cruel
Where are you now
I need the man I used to know
The one I fell in love with
The one I love still
But you’re lost to me
Slipping ever farther
Turning your back
Chasing something
Just to fill that
Emptiness
Lusting for that light
That will shine bright
And true
Guiding you
Back home
Where you belong
With me
I can only hope
And wish
Upon every star
That comes my way
To hold you again
Before time
Goes still
