once upon a time

Close the door softly as you go.
Wander off into the night.
Don't look back

I won't be standing
At the window I'll listen as
The door closes.

I was always here.
Now I know it was a lot of
Time wasted.
Step softly as you go.
Close the door quietly.

An aura of lies are draped around you
Go gently into the night.
Let me rage  against the deceit
In your lying eyes.

I was always surprised
With the look in your eyes
When I said, I love you.

The house is a blank.
A lesson learned. Don't look back
Your insincerity glows

I shall have all the lights out.
The house will forever
Be in darkness to you.
