Falling Apart

By Bruce Clifford

So many times I drifted away
My dreams at night and in the day
They canít take away my lone defense
Deciding on what will be next

So many times I drifted apart
Counting the flashes of nearby stars
You canít run through this wall of fire
Never knowing what I desire

Falling apart over again
Taking it to heart again and again
Falling apart before I can see
All of these things that matter to me

So many times I faded away
Each passing moment on any given day
Leaving this here and feeling betrayed
Never knowing what got in the way

Itís in my thoughts and mind
Itís with me each and every time

Falling apart over again
Taking it to heart again and again
Falling apart before I can see
All of these things that matter to me

So many times I drifted away
My dreams at night and in the day
They canít take away my lone defense
Deciding on what will be next

©6/9/17 Bruce Clifford
