RaccOOn eYES

I don’t know whether to miss you or let you go

you can be so damn cold

words confess your love

its what our hearts seem to know

but time and distance creep in

and the doubt begins to grow

when we’re together it’s beautiful simplicity

but as soon as that door shuts

my heart sinks in complicity

feeling like a stranger

an outsider

the silence gets wider

with eyes near shut I put on blinders

wondering if there’s a place for me

loving you persistently


like a loud noise


but will you hear it

this heart of mine has spirit

like sounding brass and tinkling cymbal

yet patience joy and love resembles

I’ll miss you now a little longer

That always makes my heart grow fonder

building muscle

getting stronger

will you benefit from my plight

and jump in with me in sheer delight

or with raccoon eyes

disappear into the night?
