since you've been gone | by bostankorkulugu
Back to group

since you've been gone

It's a shell of a home

Since you've been gone

Haunted by your footsteps

The third floor to the bedroom

still creaks.

And, lights on, I'll wait for you to come.

But there's no flame to burn bright to anymore;

no hearth in the home

no poetry left in me.

You won't come.

I'll put Bacharach on the stereo

Sit on the chair

Look out the window

Stare at the stairs

That still echo your footfall

Since you've been gone...
