Affliction

I am of those terrible men

Men that are in love with love

Like Romeo I am afflicted

With the deadliest of addiction

 

I chase a dream in vain

Simply because I fear the pain

Of feeling alone once more

And being blind is easier

 

I feel sick at nights

Because when I turn

No one stands there

 

And so I look up

And wish a thousand times

That the stars keep me company
