Turn off the Light

You always said it's not a light switch you can turn off

I never thought I could just turn off the light.

That to me this would just end.

I had hoped that things would be alright.

I never thought that I could live without the daylight.

A brightness that only blinded.

It caused me to change my sight.

Thinking I couldn’t live in perpetual night.

A relationship that will never mend.

If only the stars could hear my plight.

I had a love for you that, under the circumstances, just felt right.

Thinking that my heart wouldn’t bend.

Remembering that 2020 vision only comes hindsight.

I never thought I could just turn off the light.

A relationship that did end.

I never thought that I could live without the daylight.

But really, I had been living in perpetual night.
