So Far Away

A chill runs up my spine
awakening a time
of timelessness
when together we would kiss
the pain away
but now you leave
more than you stay
and I move through empty days
of your departure

No promises of bright tomorrows
instead you send such sorrow
that my heart would break
It travels through the channels
we created to house love
and the dreams that we dreamed of

and while you think you know
the patterns of emotions' flow
causing such emotional distress
it seems that less and less
do you allow yourself to feel
the love that's real

for your open heart has closed to all the pain
and you remain so far away
lost within a mood of solitude
locked within defensive strategies
of war that bring such tragedy
to life
