She looks at me

Like there’s nothing else to see

So longingly

Yet pensively

As if she doesn’t know what to expect from me.
That road is a broken thing

A song I no longer sing

I’ve walked it many times

With my back to the sound of struck chimes.
I suggest you stay away from me

That song is now part of a litany 

But for the contradiction of my dreams

I’ll never find peace it seems
