Arthur.

I did say I'd love you foreverbut forever ended the day you raised your hand and left a bruise.That day, you died to me. I didn't see it comingI'll give you thatYou lasted a long time under those sheep clothesYou've been stripped, Arthurthere's no longer a veil of majesty in your presence.Just the weak frame…

Do you?

When you lay your headAnd close your eyesDo you dream of me?When you wake upand see the sunriseDo you think of me?When you pick up the cameraand look into the lensDo you see my face?Do you see my eyesStaring into your soul?Do you see my smileand the wrinkles on my nose?Do you notice my dimplesDig…
