Takes Time

Takes Time

written by: SMiles



Help dance
the water from my eyes
embrace this lifeless tango
waltz sadness to goodbye
my vessel of virtue
you’re immortally imprinted
through winds of our time
be my only ghost
I wish you never die
reside in my thoughts
enlighten my darkness
breathe in this breathless world
as I sorrow
a thousand times of sorrow
lay stricken and contrite
devoid of will for putting up the fight
until a memory serves
a solitary beacon of love
scraping a scratch across the pain
a pathway entwined with hopeless
to believe our love remains
yet no smile adourns
this ravaged bleaked out face
only with a one teared eye
can I fill our open space.
