alice lost in labyrinth

{and I'm done, gone}

the moon was covered over
except for a cheshire smile
smirk in the gray sky above


I let my thoughts come out
in the night on the street
I let it all break like a cloud
burst and I cried but you say
crocodile tears! & swallow me
whole with that glare with that
angry stare - and I'm done, gone.

When you seemed to be
listening - you were merely
holding your tongue - to lash
me later on and on and on and

We ended before the new year
came in quiet & cold & silent

And I am waiting to leave here.
And you are waiting for me to go.
And after that... who can know?
