Read and review. :D
I watch as you go about straight'ning the room,
Picking up your boots that are strewn on the floor,
"Pumpkin, you know I can't stay through the night,
You know that cannot be, I've to be back before light,"
"I know," I whisper as you shrug on your coat,
And turn up your collar to ward off the cold.
I see you reach for the ring like you always do,
Then smile back bitterly "You know I cannot leave clues."
You bend down to kiss me, the last for this time,
That's supposed to last me through this cold lonely night,
I know better than to whisper "Please love, just leave her,"
Better than to beg you "Please, just stay forever,"
You walk determinedly towards that door,
I hold my tongue knowing I cannot ask for more,
And I watch as you move further down the lane,
There'll be no magic wand, no one to ward off the pain.
Alone I notice the magic gradually fade away,
Along with the few traces left of the love that we made,
Half the slipper of your life I keep to myself,
All that's left for me when the clock strikes twelve.
