Day 247 – Stone Face

There was a time when I’d come running
take the gleam from my eyes and put it in yours
you need so much light, you just burn so fast
I never had much to spare but I’d make it for you

Now the best I can do is to be a Stone Face
your flickers can bounce off my walls but I will not move
the best I can do is act like I don’t feel it
the daggers you throw at my heart to get my attention

Call it love if you want, but you know it’s not
if I have to turn myself stone cold to withstand your barrage
the best I can do is wonder how long we have left
before you grow tired of kicking a rock
