I’m so tired…
tired of waiting for
someone like you.

waiting for another chance,
an opportunity
to get it right.

But for tonight,
I settle for that sweet release,
that temporary high
that melts my worries
if just for a moment.

As soon as it passes,
I’m consumed by your memory,
drowning in tears and regrets.

Take me away from here,
from this dark lonely place
back to how it used to be.

Bring me into your arms,
oh beautiful angel
that floats through my mind
and keeps me alive.
