"Always remain positive, if it doesn't make you feel better, it will annoy enough people to be worth the effort"

I've been spending all my days,
Walking around in this dreamy haze,
Sleepless and oblivious,
Desperate for you and delirious

I put all my hours with you in a jar,
labelled it as my biggest scar,
and I'm using it to build my walls,
I'm ignoring everybody's pleas and calls.

Months, years, days.
I've been trapped in your maze,
and I miss you.

Old friend,
won't you drop me a line,
let me know you're doing fine?
I hate asking first.

My friend,
or will you still call me that,
after turning your back?
Please forgive me.

I've been thinking of all the ways,
I could do something that kind of says,
I'm sorry I pushed too hard,
I got too good at letting down my guard.

But I don't need you in your best dressed,
Just kiss me and I'll do the rest
I won't ask you for anything,
I just need you in my arms, breathing.

Minutes, seconds, weeks.
I've been climbing all these peaks,
Without you.
And I need you.

Old friend,
thought I'd drop you a line.
Let you know I'm doing fine,
guess I had to ask first.

My friend,
or can I still call you that?
I see you've turned your back;
please forgive me.

Dear friend,
I've loved you all along,
I promise to right this wrong,
I'm so sorry,
come back to me,
