Shine All the Time

There was a string of pearls and I gave them to the sky. I honestly tried to play the games that you designed. Emotional swings leave us left with only desire, and we swing around alive. It’s only alive if love stays alive. You know you’re not really alive; you’re just a shadow falling behind. No matter how much you try you can’t make the sun shine all the time.

I turned away; you started to say what a dream it could be. I shifted my eyes. I tried to be kind. When there’s no one and there’s no hope then there’s nothing left to believe.

So where are you now? I’m wondering how to fall down on my knees and finally admit all the things I believe.
