It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad World

Love At First Sight

Colors fade, when your worlds torn apart, like a mist on a cool summer’s eve

Blues and greens blend and blur into one mellow mess, when you wear how you feel on your sleeve

The deed complete now, the damage is done, the wounded broken there, in your wake

With a bright flash of light, like gunfire sparks, trusting you was my greatest mistake

As I shake off the blow, dust myself off and regroup, there you stand with that smirk on your face

Not a single mark on you, to show the carnage you leave, every strand of your hair in its place

Its a mad -mad -mad world with no limits on love, party’s play, using hearts as their bets

Just remember that no-one gets out unscathed, win some - lose some, you learn how to live with regrets

I hope one day to meet me again, maybe for the first time in my life

Find a love to make me feel beautifully whole, be my own true love, at first sight

    I loved all of this, but especially the end. I've been there, hoping to meet me again down the road and that I'd know how to love myself when it happened.
