Tick Tock And Tack…

As the time of my departure grows increasingly close. Each tick of the clock actually hurts my heart. Each second on the wall fills my mind with the ever creeping sense of dread. It’s not hard to see why. It’s not easy to simply put it behind me just like that.

I know somewhere in there, you’re feeling it too.

There is just so much to do, so much to take care off…but all I want to do is spend every waking moment with you. Maybe some of the things we do are crimes against the law. But is what matters now a crime? Is it a crime to fall asleep in your arms? Is it a crime to wake up to your gentle snoring and head on my chest? Is it a crime to laugh as we stumble because I hold your tummy so tightly in my arms as we try to walk in public. Is it a crime to have and to hold you in sickness and in health…

Till death do we part?

Don’t get any bright ideas though…Grissom’s my idol too.

To think 4 years ago I so wanted to leave this place. Ironic that life has given me something worth more than myself to stay for. Now this…this situation itself is a crime…an injustice. One thing’s for sure, I can do nothing but to let it serve its sentence. All I can do is my best to get through it.

It’s times like this I find some little solice in a song that still echo’s from my high school days.

Oh your reputation’s so golden,
You’re never lonely and you’re never home.
I know you’ve been talking about leaving,
You’ve lost all your feeling for this town.
Paint your nails and put on your lipstick,
You don’t want to miss your ticket out.
Just because you graduate from school so high in the gene pool, that’s your point of view
but when you’re broken down and no one else is around,
you’ll come running back to this town and I’ll be there, yeah I’ll be there.

’cause I remember how we drank time together.
and how you used to say that the stars are forever.
and daydreamed about how to make your life better.
by leaving town, leaving town.

Pack your bags, your smokes in your pocket,
You’re wearing my locket around your neck.
Take a drag and wait for the Greyhound,
The world is your playground and you want to win.
but when you’re broken down and no one else is around,
you’ll come running back to this town and I’ll be there, yeah I’ll be there.

’cause I remember how we drank time together.
and how you used to say that the stars are forever.
and daydreamed about how to make your life better.
by leaving town, leaving town.

Nothing in life will ever come that easy.
Doesn’t mean it has to be that hard.
I know you will find out who you are…

but when you’re broken down and no one else is around.
you’ll come running back to this town and I’ll be there, yeah I’ll be there

’cause I remember how we drank time together.
and how you used to say that the stars are forever.
and daydreamed about how to make your life better.
by leaving town, leaving town.

Maybe I won’t come back to this town…but I’ll come back to my home.

The one where the stars are forever.

The one where the rest of eternity is in your arms.
