I’m Gone

All those years,

you didn’t hear me

 

All those years,

you seemed so sure

 

All those days,

you laughed it off

 

All those nights,

I wanted more

 

All those lies,

that dug our gravesite

 

All those tears,

with feeling gone

 

Now at last

my closet’s empty

 

Love fell short

—I stayed too long
