I ONLY WANTED TO LEAVE

I only wanted to leave,

Leave the house behind,

The dull winter, the life I knew.

Night fell, a gentle, warm night,

Someone in a strange garb entranced me –

As I sat still next to my cup of tea.

I only wanted to leave.

 

There was a deafening silence all around me

Piercing my heart –

It held on to every corner of my soul

Bloodless, it fell into ruins.

I stupidly displayed it

To eyes that couldn't care less.

 

I only wanted to leave.

The curtains are slowly falling.

In a strange museum nobody else can see,

I preserve bits of my soul,

A piece of my questioning eyes.

The curtains are falling, falling, falling.

There is an inch of light that pierces them.

My eyes close.

The light fades.

Oblivion, oblivion.
