Your Window

By I IS ME

You think that I'm asleep, but I watch as you stare out of the window 
You're neither here nor there, but there is something that you remember 
There is something so deep within you, that it hides in the dark 
Not always but sometimes it appears with a flicker and a spark 
 
Was It something that I said or the weather outside of that window 
Yes boo, I realize that it could never be that simple 
But to watch as you torment yourself locked away in that dark place 
To only be able to watch as fear and pain moves across your face 
 
The fear, I can feel it as if I was standing right there 
Depression weighing you down, the darkness doesn't care 
I want to touch you, but it may be like touching a sleepwalker 
At the time I didn't know that your past was your stalker 
 
I thought that maybe we were having problem 
Maybe you were sweeping things under the rugs to keep from solving them 
But and then where did that put me, under the covers pretending sleep 
Willing to fake anything because I've fallen to deep 
  
To grasp at clouds of smoke trying to climb out of your void 
Tortures from your past that for whatever reasons were ignored 
Maybe the support wasn't there and you were encouraged to let it slide 
Maybe you were not believed or told to toughen up as you cried 
 
That trouble from so long ago has remanifested itself in your life 
The problem is in a perfect relationship, you're still enduring the strife 
I wish that I could help you before it starts eating away at what we have 
Because of you there is so much that I now have 
 
Please let me in Boo, let me share in your pain 
Let's confront it at the source, so that it never returns again 
Let's burn our past to cinders where as we both come out as heroes 
Instead of me pretending sleep and you looking out of the window

    It's hard to be the person watching someone you love go through a dark time. You wrote about it beautifully.
