Slipping Away

Rain pours slowly,
Tears stream heavily,
And I scream silently.
I can’t let you slip away.

Memories fade, lackluster in the dark,
I feel so alone as the scars catch my eye.
I shiver as nostalgia floods through my veins,
Tasting sweet summer sunshine,
Missing your arm linked through mine,
And all those careless summer nights.

Now you look at me
Through your dark eyes,
I can’t read your emotions.
You say you understand
Then I realize you are
Holding a knife to my throat,
Holding a knife to my world.
Don’t destroy me.

When you cry my heart breaks,
When you’re broken I break, too.
I need to be there for you,
And I need you there
To catch me when I fall.

The pavement shines
Glistening in the rain,
The cars blur through the tears in my eyes,
A leaf detaches from a
The world is changing,
And so are we,
I just hope that you’re not
Slipping away.
