For Eternity

450px-The_Thinker_close

i dont know how i lost the game
it was secured in a safe place
away from the prying eyes
i thought i had mastered the art of keeping things safe
i thought i was safe
i thought i was secure

when i still think about it now,
a shiver runs through my spine
and i try to run for the nearest shelter

i try not to panic
afterall, its just a phase
its just like a stupid commercial that comes in between the blockbuster movie
just when the plot gets interesting, the ad spoils it all

my game was at its magical best
i was on the way to victory ( i thought)
safe and sound
until that final moment

when i saw you
out of the corner of my eye
i lost myself at that critical moment
the moment when my whole life was turned upside down
for good or for bad, i dont know
i have lost the game
and the ball is in your court

now, i sit here
in the corner
outside the building where i saw you
still thinking about you
patiently waiting for you to come again
and cast your magic

the magic of your eyes
that has turned me into a stone sculpture
now has to cast its spell once again
and bring me back to life
i wait here patiently
i wait here for eternity
