Footsteps


Lost again
Footsteps outside
But they won’t bring my strength
They just mark the end
And they won’t belong to him
Because he is gone now too

And I can’t inspire love anymore
And there’s nothing
When he’s beside me, inside me, watching me
Following my gaze
Like he was before

What is this love?
That leaves me
bereaves me
tricks me
deceives me
Entwines with my mind
Then weaves this web of weakness,
sweetness
Then solitude
and bleakness

And I can’t inspire hate anymore
I can’t feel his jealousy
When he’s beside me, inside me, watching me
Demanding my shame
Like he was before

Alone again
Footsteps outside
But they won’t bring my strength
They just mark the end
And they won’t belong to him
Because he is lost now too.
