When he left

When he left 
He took whatever little poetry was left in her. 

When he left 
He gave her not even the chance to say the final words 

When he left 
She stared at the blank wall and did not cry 

When he left, only she remained.

Hush, he said. 
You're just a child. 
Lost in this fog 
That's spreading wild. 

Come, he said. 
Let me hide you. 
From deceit, and misery 
And cold so blue. 

Sleep, he said. 
This Earth will know. 
That you need another life 
Where you can grow.

Maybe. Just maybe I should 
Learn to leave the people I love, alone. 
Then maybe. Just maybe one day 
They'll come looking, when I'm alone.
