Do you really want to play this game of Go?
The board is set up. I know that you know
how to place each piece; take my territory.
Oh, answer me please, I’m down on my knees,
Don’t go with the breeze.
The table is set, the dinner’s been prepped.
Your eyes are dry but I know that you’ve wept.
Is the fish well done? Am I doing you right?
Let’s not tonight – I’m all out of fight.
We slept on broken lights.
The pillows are fluffed, the bed has been made.
The sheets are smoothed out but we lie where we laid.
We sung our secrets yet live out the lie.
I wish I could cry. I wish that your sigh
was a Rose Parade floating by
Do you know how to say ‘enough is enough’?
No way we could tell Love could be this rough.
Like a turbulent sea or a frequency,
the waves break us free. Oh, can’t you see?
You’re drifting away from me.
