It's Curtains for Me

Some days,

it's the best I can do.

To sit by the window,

and dream about you.

Waiting for courage,

while shrouded by fear.

The moment I surrendered,

it all became clear.

The signs and the signals,

encompassed your face.

Yet I choose isolation,

self pitied-disgrace.

I hide behind curtains,

cause it's curtains for me.

In quiet desperation,

they muffle my plea.

I'll wait for the darkness,

the night sets me free.

Concealed from the light,

alone I shall be.
