Too Late To Turn Back

I’m sorry

but I’m scared


staring all of my mistakes

in the face

wondering if I’ll make them again

and you

are not a mistake

at least I hope not

but the past is still between us

keeping me from getting closer to you

because distance cannot hold a candle

to time

nor can it erase what is done.

Cowering In The Past, Hiding From The Future

Sometimes I have to grab her hand

and pull her out of the past

because she’ll stay there so long

even I wont be able to see the future.


Staring so hard at all of the things that she wishes she could change

that she doesn’t even see whats been passing her by.


If she hadn’t spent so much time

focused on the past way back then

I think maybe her present

would be so much different now.


I really wish I could show her what she’s missing

but sometimes its hard to take your own advice.
