    Slow dancing alone
    with a gigolo moon
    while tattle-tale stars
    sneak & peek in my room

    Feline breezes
    fondle the silence
    as the loneliest of feelings
    creep out from hiding

    I lay in my bed
    but the touch of the spread
    doesn’t compare to the caress
    of her fingers across my head

    My eyes go to sleep
    as i gaze into my mind
    and inhale the scent
    her body left behind

    “Just one more chance
    please…please grant me that wish
    let me taste the love on your lips
    and feel your passionate kiss

    "Put an end to this silence
    give me some kind of sign
    we can rescue our love
    if we’d just stop wasting time"

    I heard not a word
    just the whispering sound
    of tears trickling down her face
    and the world spinning ’round

    I heard the push of her feet
    as they strolled towards the door
    it clicked softly behind her
    and I fell violently to the floor
