Linger

Though I hate to see you go
You know I know
It happens slow
And you will only change
Tomorrow

The sun will fade and appear again
A different world, enlightened and
I got nowhere left to go
I go no one left to know

Tomorrow brings
A promise ring
Broken on the floor
We always hoped for more
The longest goodbyes will
Linger,
Bring her
Down.

Promise

On the day I left,
I never cried.
The last time we spoke,
I surely lied.

I knew the truth,
that I would come back.
But I pretended as if
it would be the last.

On the day I left,
I whispered you a prayer,
but it fell on deaf ears
because you didn’t care.

You didn’t care where
we ended up, eventually.
You didn’t care how
far apart we were destined to be.

My voice is nothing.
My word holds no truth.
I broke a promise.
I broke you.

But now I stare into the sky,
as I have hundreds of times before,
and I make another promise.
This time, to myself

If only words could mend hearts.
