Parallels

Chalked up, the distance the line runs
Parallel; I find your outline next
City streets found deserted in the city that never sleeps
I lost you in sequence,
And as I heard the bullets going by,
I rushed in to save you
Sirens wailing while the crowd gathers
They don’t even know our names,
But they stare at our fates
Wondering if they know our face
Pushed back, we are held back from line
These liars never heard a thing
And the man who got away
Painted us in signs screaming they will never forget,
But the children who lived won’t know any different
All I wanted to do was keep you here
But we were meant to live different lives after all
I lost you in distance
Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist
And I’ve always believed in this
