Where You Are

by SilverAngelFire

Age Group: Adult

Where You Are

Regardless of the vast separation
Regardless of the smoke, rain, wind and pain
That darkness that serves to suffocate at times
Where you are
Is where I want to be

I keep hearing you say "If it ain't broke babe"
"If it ain't broke"
But something inside me did break last night
Broke hard, by my own hand
And I don't know how to fix it
You always make things better for me
It's you who cleans up the messes I can make
So how do I get back now
Because where you are, without a doubt
Is where I want to be

I'm so sorry baby, so so sorry I never knew
Never paid attention enough in the past
Karma maybe I guess, for all the years I made fun
Pre-judged and picked on you and your friends
Ah, but Divine has taught me quite a lesson about that
Has it not
Only in my life is it possible
This life dealt by the powers that be
And if it were not you all this time
I think my heart would die an unimaginable death
Because where you are
Is where I want to be

You told me not to go looking
You did, I heard you yesterday loud and clear
I was never the girl to go searching for useless information
Pictures to me are set in black, white and gray so oft it seems
Like colors exiled by the prism
Blue, brown, blue, brown
They're just colors you say
And this obvious argument we've had for nine years
Only yesterday I found out
Not out of neglect, no definitely not
Because my stubborn mind just would not listen
It's in myself I don't always believe
You just smile and say it's ok
All that resides here in the heart does not change
Because where you are
Is where I want to be

I'm so tired

Yet we shall make it through won't we
As always until we find our way back to that place
You'll remind me again of what love truly is
That it is not cruel as some would say
Love is never cruel
Circumstance and people are cruel
The mind in itself can be cruel
True love that is neither made up nor coached
Well that love is unconditional
And it does not dissipate so easily
Even in moments of utter darkness

And the story you've been recounting for me
Those two lost souls
Seemingly lost on opposite sides of a fence
How they would sit day after day
Unable to cross to either side
Doing nothing especially extraordinary
To the obvious eye
There is nothing either can offer the other
But perhaps sharing the passing moments
Listening, feeling, hoping, understanding
Figuring out ways to make it across that line
For that one minute when the gates should open
Even if only for a short time
They find themselves in the same place,
At the same time
Life, well that goes on, on both sides
And they each try to fit in, adjusting to the mundane
But at the end of the day, they return to that fence
People go by shaking their head
Reciting their wisdom
"You know, the grass is not always greener on the other side"
Or each would be asked
Why would you waste you time sitting by that fence every night
Their answer, as they sat and looked upon each other
Their answer was always the same
"You're right the grass is never greener, but here, right here in the middle of it all, it is exactly the same"

"If everything you held dear sat on the other side of that fence, would you walk away to let it writhe alone in the wind?"

Blue or brown, it matters not
Color is insignificant you say
Love cannot be bound
So now is not the time
Not the time to be backing out of promises made
Dismissing all the hopes and dreams
Absolutely not
Because where you are
Is right where I want to be
