Bridge Over My Eyes

Now I am sitting all alone
In the pool of yesterday
Pennies are for thoughts
Dollars exchanging rates
I believe I once knew you
But now I only know tears
Lightning for the memories
Thunder for the headaches
I do not want to see you
Not ever again in my mind
Nor to see you in person
Whatever that may mean
Your bridge over my eyes
Has broken and now I fall
Down to nowhere I go
But only you will know
In the light of tomorrow
Without hands for grasping
Nor sweet lips for the asking
My sham smiles are for show
