Billings, MT USA
You wonít be able to explain my absence,
Though you might notice I am gone.
You will not understand or even make sense
Of what you think just might be wrong.
Youíll only stop for one brief moment, maybe,
And realize that Iím not there.
And whoís to say youíll even notice, baby?
I wonder if youíd even care.
Love has left me like the light, upon a breeze,
Floating away before my eyes.
Nothing puts my soul in to itís greatest ease.
Itís easy to believe the lies.
So inward to myself, I turn, quietly.
And not a soul can find me here.
You still speak to me disrespectfully.
But you canít hurt me when Iím here.
Iím on the very inside looking outside,
Watching things go on around me.
I see what youíre doing and I canít abide.
And yet, you still can lie to me.
Do you think that Iím completely ignorant?
Am I a pawn that you can play?
No, I am but a Lady of Intelligence.
And you will not have things your way.
Say Ďgood-byeí to what you could have had, but lost.
You wonít forget all that I am.
You will be tortured by the memoryís ghost.
And love, for you, forever will be damned.
"She looked at her life
like lines, never-ending,
reforming and bending."
