Have you ever tried to capture someone's attention...wanted it to the point that it hurt? Another poem turned song. You should hear it with music. This is one of my faves.

It's cold out as I watch your breath turn into ice

Your words trembling so softly

Into the dawn I lie awake staring through my window half empty

Framed so perfectly through dark curtains

Flat against this wall

Your eyes are searching for someone, so I touch the glass screaming

You can't hear me

Think a little harder and you'll remember where you left me.

To be wrong again, I feel like crying on a cold winter's day.

Cast your shadow on a reflection of this presence,

Holding back nothing

Bound in chains that cannot break

Troubled, my soul is fleeing

A humble heart too afraid to shine, waiting silently

Heaving the loss of this strength

Instantly falling back again

Think a little harder and you'll remember where you left me.

To be wrong again, I feel like dying on a cold winter's day.
