Come Undone (If I Go Part ll)

Candles' End
Candles’ End


What if I go
And you never ever
Say stay?

Words we say
We don’t mean
Those we don’t
Where are they?

The last tear’s been shed
Dry your eyes
Spilling guts
They don’t work.

When the hurtin’ begins
Nothing else
But shattered dreams
Linger on.

Echoes too distant
Etched in memory
Embers to ashes
Blown away.

Bitter shards of glass
Ripping through your soul
Filaments of a presence
Bending the mind.

Stillborn feelings
Once upon a time longings
Aborted by hatred
Carelessly tossed aside.

Amongst the dead
Leave the good
Along with the bad
Lessons learned
Cast them away.

Not when you’re gone.

I’ll carry on
Even without
That shoulder
I used to cry on.

Misunderstood people
They don’t belong
Black or white
Brown or in between
Gaps too wide
Even smiles can’t hide.

Goodbyes happen soon enough
When there’s nothing left to say
When doors don’t open
When hearts become frozen
And all that’s left
Is come undone.
