Beyond Good-bye


Beyond Good-bye


Funny she’s still here

After all these years

Pleading for a baby sitter

And remembrance

Perhaps an embrace

Expecting what was

To still be

Like before

When she left the home broken

The child her mere token

To play you like

Rhapsody in blue

And have your family

Laughing

While she’s dancing

To an old rhythm out of tune

Trying to save face

With ego so strong

Even the lion is embarrassed

To be her mascot

Mane worn

Claws once sharp –broken

Looking like a pussy

Whose been homeless

Scratching on doors

To escape her existence

Reality blisters

While you’re withering

In your ruins

Future predictable

No need for the crystal ball

When you look in the mirror

Remember my face

And say Hi
