A Smile Unreturned - Poem/Song WIP
« on: September 07, 2007, 09:01:09 PM »
I can't really sleep, so here's something I also posted on NN:

You flashed a smile unreturned,
I didn't see what I should.
So easily may people be blinded,
"Are you keeping your eyes open?"

What can I say?
I can't see... my hand waves
Blindly before me,
Unseen.  I see now what I couldn't.
I don't know how I could be blinded
So badly, to not see....

Tooku de iki o shiteru toomei ni natta mitai
Kurayami ni omoe dakedo mekaku shisareteta dake


A scream to see,
Muted by the world without and within.
The past shaping, the present holding
Me back.  I can't wipe away
The darkness around me.

So easily may people be blinded,
"Are you keeping your eyes open?"

I can't see the bluest
sky above,
The greenest grass
at my feet.
And you before me...
I want to see....

I want to see
you standing there.
Say hello, smile back.

My heart beats,
I feel again
For the first in many days.
Am I keeping my eyes open?

I don't know what to say,
Don't know what to do.

"That's weird."  So oblivious
To life in front of me.
I can't see the happiness
Granted to everyone,
Despite it being so close.

So easily may people be blinded,
"Are you keeping your eyes open?"

So crazy am I… blinded when
So easily may others see.
Am I keeping my eyes open?
No!  My eyes aren't seeing….

Love is one part of the journey,
It gets you through pain in life.
No matter what happens,
It moves you forward.

"Are you keeping your eyes open?"

Why are my eyes closed?
Why can I not see you?
Can't touch the sky,
Can't see the daydreams.

I can't see the world around me.
Can't see you there, standing.
Wipe away the darkness that blinds.

"Are you keeping your eyes open?"
            Eyes open?
"Are you keeping your eyes open?"
Can you even see…?
            See me?

Everybody hurts,
Everyone has secrets,
Pain that can't be washed away.
But through it all,
The darkness is lost,
Giving way to the brightness.

Keep your eyes open,
You may just see…
Not just mixed signals,
A mind confused,
But beneath it all….

 "Are you keeping your eyes open?"
            Eyes open?
Can you even see…?
            See… me?

Can I open my eyes?
Open my eyes!
I can see you!  I do!
I am keeping my eyes open.

Time tells all,
I'll do anything to see you smile.
"I have a week left…
Left of paradise"
By your side.

Now all we can do is live.

Two lines have been borrowed from Rie Fu, so no suing me. XD
