You're like a dream fading with the rising sun.

You're presence I knew so tangibly 
Now seems like a figment of my imagination.
It's easy to loose you in the fog of my memories,
And I feel like there isn't a point for you anymore.

You're so close and yet so far.

You're like shifting shadows I can't catch
On a moonlit night.
I believe you're there but you're not.

I cry in dark corners because I can't speak to you.

I can't tell you my secrets anymore, 
Because your answers seem like platitudes.
I can't help but think I'll just be a plaque 
You'll hang on your wall someday.

I doubt the existence of idiosyncratic us.

I don't know how you stand by and think it's perfect
When the ground we walked on cracked and swallowed us.
We've faded in the shifting sands of time.

I will slip through your fingers unless you can grip me.
