Tear Bound


Your tear held my heart with warmth that came with a soft breeze
Hearing faint honesty that you'd refrain from wearing on your sleeve
Past feelings fought with present emotions conflicting with my mind
So much that moving in opposite directions left painful trails behind
A fading voice left inside to tell me how I ought to feel
Would I be blamed for moving too fast and not letting the wound heal?
Knowing I couldn't keep away from your complexity if I tried to
Am I the fool if that's the way that I take you?
No hesitation to be able to once again hold the sound of your voice
Yet sadly, always becoming two roads diverging unwillingly by choice
As I took the one I'm used to traveling by you went your separate way
Looking back with something in your eyes but nothing left to say
I knew if I looked at you one last time, I'd escape back graciously
Then I'd drip back into you becoming a ripple growing continuously
Gentle words from your lips would become sweet love that I could bear
Taking me back to a place where you had once kept me, living on air
Standing still in that moment, trusting what was anything but new
My heart held by your tear, thought of no greater devotion
Than being bound to you
