Faces only remind you of How lonely you are, You say you've swam too far Into the sea of your regrets That I am your lifeboat But didn't you hear I sank long, long ago?
You've been searching For a new home, One that doesn't creak Or shudder at night. But homes are not people And your voice cracks As you point out There's a welcome mat By the front door But I never answer When you knock.
It's been a while since I started attracting Strangers with flashlights To search me like A haunted place. I finally realized they Were the ones that Needed scaring away.
It's so odd to think, You once told me You saw beauty In clifftops, And I thought you Were talking about The view.
