I saw shame and pride gathering behind your eyes.
When you turned me away from your door.
I smiled across the line - a line I did not realize.
I won't bother you any more.
You're forever on your way, in glorious decay.
You're got me speaking out of turn.
I cover your words with mine, we say the same things every time.
As smart as we are we never learn.
The things that are in between what we say and what we mean,
haunt me like the beating in my chest.
Learn to love the back and forth - purging life's retort.
I want you to put my patience to the test.
