Wish You Were Here


Wish You Were Here

Back then, when we were teenagers
Fifteen years ago when we thought
Nothing would separate our friendship
To divide it with a positive sorrow
My neighbor is now alcoholic
Tears fall when I smell her cigarette
She used to be smokey looking
Attractive to my olden delusions
Inside of me, I'm trying
Outside of me, I'm flying
Everywhere I seek for a friend
All I observe is death's head
Although, I found what I was
Missing and how to make a
Perfect life without the yearnings
I drove and cried over the phone
I wanted to make them laugh
To forget about my own grief
Yet, I recalled you again when
They were laughing and I wasn't
It's hard to pretend nothing is
Missing when you didn't take me
Under the soil, and left me without
Taking me up the sky to rest joyfully
