DEPARTURE

DESPONDENT, BY THE WAYSIDE

I FEEL YOU BESIDE ME.

APART FROM ME, YOU ARE A PART OF ME

I CAN FEEL YOU ARE

GONE, I CAN TELL YOU

TIDES SHIFT, BOULDERS STRAY.

I CAN TELL YOU WHERE WE WERE THAT NIGHT,

I CAN TELL YOU WHEN IT TURNED TO DAY.

WE RAN PAST TIME - YOU AND ME.

THROUGH DOORS AND HALLWAYS, PAINTED GREEN.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE SUN SET, AND ROSE, I THINK

IT TURNED TO DAY, SUDDENLY

BLACK PINE BURNT (IN THAT SMALL BOX)

I KNOW YOU SMELT IT THEN.

FINE DUST CHOKED AND SMOKED TO ASH.

I COULDN'T HELP IT- I BREATHED IT IN.

I CAN TELL YOU WHERE WE WERE, WHEN IT TURNED TO DAY, AND THEN,

DID YOU SAY YOU WOULD COME BACK?

DID YOU TELL ME WHEN?

I WILL NEVER LEAVE WITHOUT YOU

BUT REGARDLESS, I WILL WANE.

YOU TURNED THE CORNER, AND IT WAS DIFFERENT.

I COULDN'T SAVE YOU - I BREATHED AGAIN.
