When The Lights Go Out

on the rock that shimmers
a golden plate
set for someone
anyone
to take apart
piece by piece

I’m afraid that it won’t end
and your slate
wiped clean, erased
again
she’ll fall apart
piece by piece

the green died with the love
that you could never give
and can’t will back

in the jealous mind appears
a golden ring
made for no one
no one
it strangles
then rips you apart
piece by piece

speak when the lights go out
speak when the lights go out
speak

Soon

I have a system
and for that, I’m relieved
I’ll do my best
I’ll be a friend
worry not for me, no
I’ll be alright again soon

I’m glad I met you
yes for that, I’m grateful
we’re similar
your words ring true
back to before, now
and I’ll be alright again soon

it’s already better
and for that, I’m glad
I feared the worst
but you’re a friend
and when I pick myself up
dust myself off
and look back at you
I know before long
I’ll be alright again, soon
