the lonely man at the window
the old man sits by the window
she left him here yesterday
said she would be back soon
he went to bed but could not sleep
has she stayed away on purpose?
next morning he arises again
to sit and wait even if it takes an eternity
he said he would wait
and that he did until his dying day
this morning at daybreak

It has been a while
Wind of change have yet to come
Will it ever come?

woman in a starbuck’s window
woman sits in a starbuck’s window
looking, searching, waiting, watching
is it the thing that watchers
in an Edward Hopper painting
wait, search, look, watch for
does she know
who she is looking for
who she is searching for
who she is waiting for
who she is watching for
I wonder if the subjects in

there's that distance in her
something remote and far
like the canals of Mars, an
ice monolith atop a star
her soul of cosmic mystery
went to places I cannot ken
sheathed in armoured silk
none knew where or when
in those blue eyes is infinity
windows on time and space
blinking before shutters up
in a cryptic chain-mail face
enigmatic were her ridd...

My love, I need you.
Here I am falling in love with the beauty of the world.
Waiting for you, as if it were the end of the world.
I do not mind the wait,
I have the time.
But I have to be honest,
I need you.
I've felt you before,
and that's fine
Someday I'll see you,
and I'll know.
And even if you do not know, it's fine.
I have love to give and loves will ...

Five words can be all it takes to set your mind at ease for a while.
Great, I'm not forgotten you'll think.
I am of interest.
But time passes.
Time heals all wounds?
Time brings with it opportunity for worry.
Time is the enemy of the impatient.
Time feeds the anxious like oxygen feeds a flame, fuelling the panic until it burns so brightly it consumes everything in it...

Watching the dark turn to purple, pink, then light
Waiting is not as bad with this perspective in mind
Of course an easy route would take away the time
But here we are and we're okay I think you'll be just fine

Its the final curtain lets see who was acting and who really hurting
A burning desire to be a follower no matter the case
Instead of showing some back bone you rather limp home with your tail tucked between your legs
I bet you thought you was big dog on campus till you seen a real monkey act up
Even a rose got thorns dont think a beauty cant defend itself
You got grass thinking...

I hate the arguging and the cursing
The fist fights using words and
The long walk through the fire aint no beach over here
Its just a pilliar of mixed emotions waiting to get knocked down
Im not gone hold it up lets see how long faith keeps it up
Now im the one laying with a frown
You disappointed fine i get it but that dont mean you dont tell the shopkeeper wassup

I know you're out there
I can hear your voice in the wind that rustles the leafless trees
Like them I'm waiting for Spring
To grow again inside love
I'm searching for you
I chase my shadow in the fading colours of the setting sun
Look for your message amongst the stars
Bathed in moonlight
In awe of the universe
I've dreamt ...

Late at night you lay
Face in pillow pointed away
Tears gleam and in the reflection they glare so unyeilding
It's so late so late at night
Is it almost day
The clock ticks and tocks but doesn't move
The hours tick by endless
It is late at night and all thoughts are awake
Laying in bed wondering what happened with fate
Remember the promises you made the promises layed to...
