Out of Love

I woke up alone to an empty bed

The sheets were piled high and my eyes were glowing red

Said we could make it, and that’s what we did.

But little did I know you were drifting all but away,

And come today, you disappeared, but not from my head.

These blows to my chest that I couldn’t take

And as I sit on the bed we once shared,

Where I loved you, and you said you did

But now I know you were lying,

And I was unprepared
