My eyes trace the outline of your shadow
As you walk out of line
And the path you leave behind
Ripples out forever

Your eyes, hair, and silhouette
Create the shadows on my wall
And the lines of your face
Are just a distant memory

I never asked anything of you
Even if you thought I wanted everything

Your thoughts weren’t wrong though
I did want it all, and maybe more
But that was never a possibility
And certainly never a reality
