Marking Time

Marking Time

I lost

A friend

And my heart is still breaking

I would quell my thoughts

And bite my tongue

If it meant 

That he would stay

Because this leaving

His flying away

Is a space 

I cannot suffer

And I would rather 

Measure my words

To mark time with him

Than to feel this way

All alone
