Long December

My love grows loud

In your game of spinning away

And back to me in a crowd

Always your center

 

My mind grows dizzy

As we dance this dance,

This familiar little waltz,

We say nothing, it’s nobody’s fault

 

The way you leave me here

When there’s nothing left to take,

Says everything the silence

Between us could not break

 

Empty rooms and closed doors

Maybe it’s less you want,

Maybe I really deserve more

 

All I hear is the unmistakable

Sound of my heart breaking,

In your once sturdy hands

Now cold and shaking

 

I told you it was heavy

Don’t you remember?

Add the weight of yesterday

Plus that one long December…

 

My love grows loud,

In your game of spinning away

And back to me in a crowd

Always your center

 

Yet never enough

And If I could, oh darling…

 

I’d pry my heart back  from

Your weak & wandering grasp,

Except either way, it kills me

Either way, we fade fast

 

xoxo
