    i watch u sleep
    with ur back turned to me
    and think of how
    u used to hold me closely

    a stare beyond the ceiling
    makes me think
    has someone else been on these sheets?

    now u stand paranoid
    in a space once filled
    with laughter and hi fives
    now the wind is still

    my cerebellum wonders
    what has this love profit
    no more days of dialog
    as we sat on the carpet

    and stared out the window
    watching cars go by
    bacon sandwiches and gatorade

    "a stare beyond the ceiling

    so many nights i've lain in this trance
    wondering how soon would be our last dance

    frustrated by a future that now seems so bleek
    loves turned so cold we forgot how to speak....

    thank you for sharing this tyte piece it was truly felt and oh so relative....holdyahead:( :grouphug:
