Time ticks by in my delirium
Chasing after strokes of midnight
For whom that old bell may toll
While I wither
Lost, yet unafraid
Because I wished upon a hope
And though that hope was lost to me
I can forbear the cost
Because when the moment presented
I chose to chance
To risk my heart on the line
In hopes that I could share with you
A life worth living
And while it was a chance denied
The inevitable fact remains
That I chose to try
And when the day comes
That a dream comes to life
I can live knowing
That beyond all doubt
I was willing to try
You brought that out of me
And for that simple thing
I will forever love you
Even though you've chosen
Not to love me

Darned light years!

Only small doses of confidence at a time. I'm teetering heavier on the negative today. But your comment made me smile. :)

aww this is sweet. Gotta give

aww this is sweet. Gotta give it the ol college try, though sometimes it amounts to little more than beer, weed and too much sleep. Also, cute cat. You shall find another to love who will reciprocate if you keep lookin

His name's Coal.
Beer I can go with.
I've been picking at my old ghosts for inspirations outside of the 365 challenge lately. This one just flipped a switch in my head, as most of my work does.
Love is just a heartbeat away, after all.
