We Stumble

I am waiting
once again
in silence
in limbo
no motion
in this void
all my thoughts replayed
in endless loops
circling memories
chasing my own tail
run round through fiery hoops

we stumble in the darkness
stumble in the darkness
tumble into sharp, blinding light

I am fading with the light
in shadow
unfocused
an outline in the dark
slipping out of phase
a phantom from your past,
just one more snapshot
you'll process and press
between the pages at last

we stumble in the darkness
stumble in the darkness
tumble into sharp, blinding light

your eyes cannot deceive me
your touch betrays each lie
still you walk away from me
away from you

no message is relayed
all lines have been cut
I will look back on each secret we shared
though the windows to your soul are shut

we stumble in the darkness
stumble in the darkness
tumble into sharp, blinding light
