Glimmer

You left the ring on the table as you walk out the door

You turned and looked at me hoping to see the man you saw before

I can’t even look you in the eyes as the tears roll down your face

I can feel a phantom heart pain in the void where my heart took up space

Now the air I breathe taste bittersweet and sour

Now every minute of every day is stretched to hours

Now every light in every socket has gone dimmer

Now that my happiness is gone my life’s lost its glimmer

You looked to me for answers where I had none

You told me all the things you never told anyone

I hid parts of myself that I couldn’t bear to show

I held words back that now I wish I’d let go

Now the air I breathe has gone cold and stale

Now everything I do seems like one big fail

Now every light in every socket has gone dark

Now that my happiness is gone my life’s lost its spark

You are the sun in someone else’s skies

You are the apple in someone else’s eyes

I fade slowly into the back of the crowd

I disappear into the darkness without a sound
