You're Too Late...


Author's Note: I went back and made the suggested edits that AM offered, sorry its taken so long to get to it. Enjoy ~ Red

You were too late for me.
The words so long forgotten.
They sat inside your head.
Your willingness was rotten.

I tried to stay and talk.
To work out all my dreams.
Alone and lost you’ve left me.
The ship is gone it seems.

Sailed away and crashed.
Sunk deep within the sea.
Drowning in emotion.
No one else can see.

Reaching out for land.
Attempting to stay strong.
Grasping someone’s hand.
But its been so long.

Hero in our mists.
A friend or worthy foe?
Will they stop to help me?
Or will they let me go?

Pulling me away.
Sheltered and romanced.
How my body sways.
In my dreams I danced.

The hand it holds me tight.
Lifts me in the air.
I feel my heart take flight.
No longer in despair.
