You Never Said Good bye  

You never said good bye
You just stopped taking my calls
I'm left to wonder why
Feeling more like dust undisturbed

Than the book under it
I don't know which is worse
The unanswered hope of forgotten ruins
Or the fine particles of exhausted prayers

But right now I'm somewhere
In between
A pyramid on it's way back
To sand dunes
A box of yellowed letters,
Moisture damaged
Molds creeping upward
In the basement

You never said good bye
Just stopped saying anything

I've traced back my steps
Over and over again
To where we began
Straight on to where years end
Truth is,
It's a slow, slow fade
I can't point to the moment,
Exactly
The moment you strayed
Can't understand why
What did I..?
Did I..?
Did you..?
What is it
That made dust of me and a ghost of you?

You never said good bye
You just stopped taking my calls
I'm left to wonder why
Feeling more like dust undisturbed

Than the book under it
I don't know which is worse
The unanswered hope of forgotten ruins
Or the fine particles of exhausted prayers

But right now I'm somewhere
In between
A pyramid on it's way back
To sand dunes
A box of yellowed letters,
Moisture damaged
Molds creeping upward
In the basement

You never said good bye
Just stopped saying anything

My memories are grains
In an hour glass
Breathe
And I'll pluck you
From the past
By where the fog
Of your breathe
Collects
And you trace 
A reason
In it
With a gentle
Finger
I'll at least understand

I've paced upon my steps
Over and over again
Feet pounding from my chest
Never resting loss
Lost a friend
A little lost in what I became
I can't point to the moment, 
Exactly
The moment you strayed
Can't understand why
What did I..?
Did I..?
Did you..?
What is it
That made dust of me and a ghost of you?

You never said good bye
You just stopped taking my calls
I'm left to wonder why
Feeling more like dust undisturbed

Than the book under it
I don't know which is worse
The unanswered hope of forgotten ruins
Or the fine particles of exhausted prayers

But right now I'm somewhere
In between
A pyramid on it's way back
To sand dunes
A box of yellowed letters,
Moisture damaged
Molds creeping upward
In the basement

You never said good bye
You never said good bye
You never said good bye
I only miss you more..
