Wasted

I’ve Wasted years Missed youth I’ve wasted tears Missed the truth I’ve wasted money Challenged bills I’ve wasted love Looked for thrills I’ve wasted thought Emptied the mind I’ve wasted heart Not being kind. I’ve wasted breath Gambled time Now I’m wasted On cheap red wine.

Only

Only a fool Would miss the day Only a fool Would dismiss me this way... Only love Would keep me here Only love Would pass the fear Only you Would miss what is Only you Would leave it like this.

Waste

Time honored distance Just as night appears Howling may be absent No less present the fears. Skin holds wincing Eyes show the shutter Lonely's cold hands Find heart's panicked flutter. For pace is but a sprint Running Life's pace Mist by the shadows Lighted by the waste.
