She looks at me... eyes drenched with love and confusion,
'What is it that tears you apart so? '
I look at her, and through her,
past the sensible answers,
Feel broken down, my body aches
My heart it bleeds from past mistakes
Can't stop the tears, they fall like rain
I will always love you
Till the very end
Look me in the eye
I came to visit the old baseball field in the dying town where I grew up. It was less than a whisper of what it once was. My first steps on the dirt sent my chest to thumping, and the still wind held the scent of chalk and nachoes.
It's beyond the pad and pen,
And bigger than what I'd say.
Really, I could only say amen,
To describe how I feel today.
Behind that garden rail;
Where worms, squirm and roam,
They dig into every worst part of my day.
I feel them crawling, making my hide their home.
