That One Summertime

summertime

Stealing me away like I was only yours to keep

Had a faith on that broken clock, but time took a leap

Realized hours are mortal and we had so much to achieve

Fell under the orthodox of morality, same as everyone perceived

.

You made yourself believe that love was just a myth

I denied myself of all common sense, figured you were never mine to begin with

.

Now I lay here, after all this time, with all that I have gained

Wondering how satisfaction must feel; all I persist is unfading pain

Got a house filled with artifacts but nothing that I need

Have a soul filled with banality that forever bleeds

.

Left with nothing but the reminiscence of time when you were mine

Left with nothing but some regrets and those irreplaceable echoes grimed

Left with nothing but those moments, back when everything was in line

But all I really gained are your memories and that photograph we took one summertime

  1. These two lines really struck me: “Got a house filled with artifacts but nothing that I need

    Have a soul filled with banality that forever bleeds.” You packed so much meaning into so few words and conveyed so much about our materialistic lives. 🙂
