Lingering

He's leaving…

He's really leaving now

But it's not for anyone to say

What happens between them,

And makes their happiness fade away


She's torn, but she's not broken

A shadow of reality still approaches from behind

Separated from herself completely,

Yet trapped within her guilty mind


He's done, because he knows

This is no longer what he desires

A flame of remorse ignites in his heart,

And it sets his soul on fire


She's watching…

She's watching him fade away

Knowing that she could have done more

She turns her back on this fleeting romance,

As she slowly closes the door
