the other nite some friends called me
to go with them to a movie
that had been playing down the
road for weeks
it was a classic where one wins
and the other just makes the
best of things.

I was in such a hurry that I bearly
made it in before the picture began..
Then from the corner of my eye
I saw you standing underneith
the light doorway.

You never noticed me I guess
because of the darkened room,
I thought back of how I use
to watch you when you were
sleeping, wanting you to tell
me my heart would be alright,
knowing that I would never
be the one you wanted
totally after her,
I was just something
that you had been denied
You always said you were
over her, but I had seen
the picture before,
how so many run for
cover from the rains
then after their
hearts heals they always
leave some one else
to dry.
It hurt to watch you kiss
her knowing you were
finally saying your last
good night.

Although I truly knew you
were a one man's woman
I knew you werent meant
for me,
when I saw the shadows
of her who would never leave,
and when she came over
and took your hand so
easily when ever you
spoke of her,
I knew there would never
be a place for me to run
from her meer worth.

I stopped to throw a paper
cup in the trash as I watched
you leave ,
wondering if you really
would ever know
what you were doing,
but I knew it was time to go.
I guess a picture shown
can save a thousand words.

I some times take the
time to wonder
about everything
and where you are
these days,
and wonder
when I will
ever stop thinking,
but most of all I wonder
where it was my heart
had really been.
