Day by Day #58: Chloe

She is standing in the doorway shyly

With a smile and a finger at her cheek

I make my move cautiously towards her

She sees me but is afraid to speak

We are here alone, Adam and Eve

Everything is as it is meant to be

But something is wrong

She sees me blindly

What is flesh when it is turned to stone

 

She will never get anxious or disobey

She will never speak and betray

She will never get angry or wonder

She will never think and say no

 

I am just a man behind this gold

I woke up back home, flowers for my wife

And I want to stay home, but I want to dream

Why long when you are here, Chloe is alive in us

With both our eyes closed, next to me but gone

 

She will never get anxious or disobey

She will never speak and betray

She will never see you or wonder

She will never die and live

 

But I am just a man behind this gold

Why is your face made out of stone?
