looking away

feeling your gentle glance, my soul was warm with the thought of being desired
i looked away
hoping that you would find some reason to come and talk with me
still i couldn't find the strength to form this event, i let it be
come talk with me, won't you please forgive me for lacking the courage
i felt so discouraged

and as i stood up to walk away, i felt my heart sinking low
gently i stand, thinking one last time in my mind -- and felt a blow
as i walked away, footsteps growing heavier with each sway, still alone

so terribly far away from home

looking around the room in my big empty apartment
finding no peace in the emotional department
why must i crave the presence of another
it should be
it wasn't
i can't
i failed
