Finally we say goodbye, 2017

Memories up in smoke

Drifting into the sky, joining with the clouds

You weren’t there

but I was

At the chapel you turned your back, on the creaking stairway you interrupt

You weren’t there because you needed something

but I was, if only you could look at me

Now I’m packing up my frustrations, recriminations and accusations.

I’m tying them tight, heading for the river, I’ve included the bricks as dead weights.

Like drowning cats I’m killing my past

Here I am, you are over there
