Gone

You said you would stay;
Never leave.
You made a promise;
A plea …
To me.

‘Don’t ever go;
Stay.
Play that song,
Sing loud;
Make me proud.’

The words won’t come
The chords are stuck.
There’s nowhere to go
Nowhere to run …

The sun has gone down;
The moon won’t rise.
The night never ends;
Where are your eyes?

So, don’t tell me to sing,
Or play that tune.
I’ve called a halt to life,
I just want to hide
Because …
You lied.
