​For a long time I sat there

Right where you left me

Unable to move

A hundred thoughts running 

through my mind

Not a word came out

Silence all around

I thought of your face

Both of us averting the gaze

Worried about what we would see

In each other’s eyes

Where we used to be
I packed my bags then

When I could take it no more

Turned off the lights

Silence all around

Closed my eyes

Pictured your downcast eyes

Tried so hard to look for me

I could find no more.
That wasn’t the image I wanted to take

Before I left
