You said it was the darkness
that surrounded me in the light;
I wanted to believe that it was
the removal of my sight.

You cried and begged me
"reach out for my touch";
I couldn't understand you,
or why you needed me so much.

When you fell to your knees
and softly muttered there in pain;
I lifted my eyes up - and away,
looking for the angry, bitter rain.

Whirlwinds of rage and anger,
swept your heart coldly aside;
Pleading and reasoning fell
within the tears that one of us cried.

Listening for a sound,
anyone will do;
silence is my only friend...
that- and the memories of you.
