The Day the Earth Stood Still –
With no warning
October 10th 2012

With a lawyers letter

I was overpowered and alienated.

We kissed
We lost our heart and soul
To each other
I took you deep inside me
I was yours
I felt your lips on my skin
We shuddered
Our lives turned upside down

We never said goodbye
You stood
Detached from that pain
You strangled me
You lanced my heart
Left me alone to live
You always said
I will be with you when your world stands still
It hurts
It’s hopeless as I don’t understand
The lie

I can’t move on
I can’t tell you what it really is,
I can only tell you what it is
right now, it’s as close as it gets
to the earth standing still

Only you can let me go

I ask

Search deeply within your soul
Hold me inside with you.
End the desolation
Save our love as real
Echoes of wonderful memories
Essence of our anticipation
Let’s hold onto the memory of our passion
I don’t care that you lied
All I care is
Why you lied

I agonise
Why you held me tight against your soul
And carried me way above my world
Why when I was going you said;
“Wait, where you going?”
“I’m leaving you;” “no, your not, your never leaving me.
We are never going to be apart.” you pleaded.
Come back, we kept running right back, here we go again

Now looking back
It was so insane, ’cause when it was at its best or worst
We engulfed each other
You were my Superman with the wind at our back

Brutally abandoned for
The secret; the alien force
Your soul detached in the end from the devastation by the lie?
