Times Dark Laughter
Can you hear just at the edge of your mind? Times dark laughter
Echoing from the past.
Can you hear it there just beyond reason just beyond rhyme.
Like some demented harlequin cavorting in your head.
Times dark laughter filling you with dread.
With each tic of the clock
Every day that slips past.
With every lie you tell your self
About getting it right next time.
Living the lie while your dreams wither and die.
Putting off today what you can do tomorrow
And tomorrow never comes.
Frantic you become searching for that someone
That makes you feel alive.
All the while times dark laughter
Grows louder somehow
One life to live one love to give
and you cant seem to get it right somehow.
When I think of how things should have been
might have been
I hear times dark laughter giggling again.
Living through the hell of relationships that have failed.
I laugh and I cry and someday I will die
to the tune of times dark laughter
Playing in my head.
memory's as thick as dust
in a house that isn't a home
a name whispered upon the wind
whispered again in your head
dreams so real I can feel your touch
hushed foggy nights bright with full moons ghostly light
soft laughter on cold night breeze
you almost smile but have forgotten how
movement caught from the corner of the eye
you turn to look but there's nothing there
but still you stare
foot steps faint echoing your quickened pace
you stop to listen
but the sound you hear
is the pounding in your own chest
you gasp as you realize you been holding your breath
the sound of moaning is simply your own
the scent of perfume
hangs heavy on the air
as if only moments ago
you had been there
music wafting through
two figures dancing
in pale moon light
a vision of you and I or
just tears in my eye
