One side of drifting
These wounds don't seem to heal,
only seeming to worsen.
and love loses its appeal
as now time seems to be quickened.

Only seeming to worsen
is my self imposed isolation
as now time seems to be quickened,
freezing me in consternation.

Is my self imposed isolation
something that will last long?
It's freezing me in consternation
when I see I've been alone all along.

Something that will last long
never really seems to stay,
and when I see I've been alone all along,
I feel withered away.

It never really seems to stay.
I promised myself I would drift.
I feel withered away.
Maybe these meanderings will lift.

I promised myself I would drift
until the end of my life.
Maybe these meanderings will lift
my battered soul damaged from strife.

Until the end of my life,
I think I shall continue to be alone.
My battered soul damaged from strife
will soon fade away and be unknown.

I think I shall continue to be alone,
and love loses its appeal.
It will soon fade away and be unknown
since these wounds don't seem to heal.
