A night just passed without you here

You’re bedside left untouched

I relish the silence but recoil when I hear it so

I miss you, but I really don’t, so please just don’t come home

I love to be here alone, pretending that this is really a home


When you roll yourself through the door, 'I am loved' becomes no more

As the silence evaporates, so do thoughts of a plan to escape

And to think that I could be true to something or someone who could never be true

To love and not be loved forevermore by you,

I now know I should have listened to “not have theses colours is to a poison lack. If you see these missing, be ready to pack.”


And now he calls me so by another name for a wary foe

He presents himself when I do not reply

And strikes me, and without a sigh, I think again of by and by


My lines of love were written in silences,

thoughts that were incomplete

As said to him while I was beat, with nothing else to do

“Stay happy, be brave; be yourself, don’t be saved.”


Let me be free from this pain,

Let me regain what I lost

Let me know what true love is,

Don't let me stay lost


Another day has passed,

Without someone here for me,

I start to lose my sense of right and wrong

I lose my thoughts of going home


I lose my willing to an avid sea

And let these times take hold of me


I slowly close my eyes,

Envisioning a child ever so kind,

And second and second by, I slip from being alive.


When he comes home tonight,

He shall not ever again have to fight

A person who let him know,

She was ready to let him go.
