Stay

I have tried and tried
So many times,
To win your heart,
To make you smile.
But every time I try,
In your fright, you
– hide and cry.
I continue to wait with a sigh!
Will it take days or ages?
Come and stop by my side.

With cold hands and a numb mind

I walked to unwind.

 

Dull red and brilliant blue

Were the colours that came through..

From bars and her shiny eyes.

 

She glanced at me cold as ice

Then went amiss

Into the shadows of the night.

 

Like a stray I drifted away

Into the coldness of her familiar sight.
