Time Travel

I wish that I had never opened my eyes

Wishing to go back to the time where I was naive

To the time where I could not see the deceiver standing before me

But I was younger then, not being able to comprehend

We were closer then

Wishing to go back in time

 

I wish that my eyes would have remained sealed

Blasting off into a time that is not now

When he would go stargazing late at night with me

When everything was peaceful and right

Those were the good times where I couldn't understand

Wishing I could go back in time

 

I wish that my eyes would have remained closed

I remember the time where we would talk like there was no tomorrow

The gigantic sparkling smiles that would spread across our faces

The saccharine smell of baked goods that we had made on christmas morning

The time where I could not perceive the fabricator before me.

Wishing to go back in time.

 

I wish that my eyes would have remained shut

I am deprived of a time machine

Wanting things to go back to how they used to be

He was my sun after the stormy weather

The time where I could not understand the fibber facing me

Wishing to go back in time

 

I wish that my eyes would have remained screwed

The bone crushing hugs that would leave me gasping for air

That is one of the things that I miss the most

That was in the past, this is the present

Because now I can see the liar staring down at me

Wishing to go back in time

 

I wish that my eyes would have remained fastened

The time where I felt like I could tell him any and everything

To the time where my small arms were always clinging tightly to his legs never wanting to let go

This is why I want a time machine

Because now I know how deceitful he is

Wishing to go back in time

 

I wish that WE could go back

Because father I miss you

Wishing to go back in time
