Never There

Shall I laugh and gently lay it all aside...?
(The hurt, the pain, heart's agony,
just wishing I would die.)

Should I pretend it never happened then...?
(The love, the need, that total empathy
that we still share.)

How do I numb myself when all I feel
is just this aching need...?
(Waking up, I swear I felt you here.)

I've looked into those other eyes.
I've searched the vastness of the skies.
I reach for you, but never are you there...
