I see it now.

Looking back:

Our hearts shook
And that record broke,

Tossed on the floor.
Then you storming out the door into the storm.
You can't hear me scream:
Put your sweater on!

You ran so far
Like an ant escaping an angry palm
But it’s you, vulnerable, under an angry sky.
I run to the car,
But it wouldn't start
I look back-
You vanish into the rain
And it's coming down hard.


I get a call from an unknown number;

Breathing but no response.
Maybe I just imagined it.
Maybe it was just a coincidence,
But I can't help but think you're out there.

At least tell me you're okay.
Why won't you come home?
Months pass-
Still no sign.
They say even the dogs can't find your bones
As if there's any bones to find.

I think I'll always believe you ran away...
It's easier that way.

I'm in the living room drinking tea now.

In the corner of my eye I see someone at the window
Looking at me through the snow.

I look back.
I see it's your face against the glass.
Your smiling,
But it's a sad smile.

I don't know why, but I laugh.

 

They say it’s because I did it,

That I killed you,

And that it’s not you,

It's the guilt that is haunting me-

But it's not true...

 

I don’t believe them.
