The suitcases are lined up along the wall; I’m just waiting for the phone to call.
It never rings or vibrates about; my memory simmers to figure it out.
You left me in such a brittle place; now I vaguely remember the smile, your face.
Days pass to seasons and dust has now gathered; to mingle and stack upon what never did matter.
You made a promise you couldn’t keep, yet the memory of you still haunts my sleep.
The clock ticks on to soothe my soul; time has sewn my heart to whole.
I’ve unpacked all the cases now; looking back I often wonder how.
How did I come from there to this?
Minus caress or even a kiss.
No matter as the curtain has opened and made me realize I needed you then.
With those thin walls and open beams; God brought an Angel for long-forgotten dreams.
Scores are no longer kept to know; for I am suited to the cottage and crow.
Feathers of wonder appear in an unusual place; today I’ll continue and no longer chase.
Love remains a ghost of memory, and I shall break the chain to free.
Why you’ve haunted me for so long; it must’ve been the choice of song.
I’ve grown new bones to make me stronger, and I shall live a bit more longer.
