At Ending

At daybreak

As the golden sun rose beaming into the sky

We said hello, hi, how are you?

Who are you?

*

We introduced ourselves

Fell in step beside each other

And spoke of many things

*

We laughed

We cried

I was comfortable

I told you my life story

And secrets

That no one but you knows

*

I bothered you

Bugged you

Ran happily in circles around you

Wagging my tail

*

Then you scared me

Or maybe

I scared me

And I tried to run away

Get away

*

At midday

As the sun paused reverently overhead

I told you that

Yeah

I liked you

*

And yeah

You said you liked me back

*

I was so lost

But the road was clear before me

And I was happy

Because I suddenly

Had the power

To do what I wanted

Most of all

*

Make you happy

*

At evening

As the sun is now setting

I finally see the writing on the wall

*

I thought it was still midday

But the sun has always been setting

And too late

I see it getting dark

Falling down around me

*

Perhaps I should have seen

Your shadow on the ground

And known what was coming

*

Now as the darkness

Creeps out from behind the stars

I wonder

What was I

To you

Except a lie?

Did you ever really love me?

Do you even

Know

What that means?
