The Lament #fridayfictioneers ~ 10/25

Melancholy keys offering a melody, a sultry voice of ache, lyrics coaxing redemption fill the hollows of my soul. Its refrain circles back, returning again and again and again to where our words began.

 

I didn’t see it coming

Didn’t sense the approaching tempest

Whispering loss low beneath the wind

 

I didn’t see it coming

But you blew this house down

I became an echo resounding

the silence of your goodbye

 

I didn’t see it coming

The catalogue of regrets

Our imperfect history

displayed upon suddenly barren walls

 

I didn’t see it coming

Guilt your ghost

You left me haunted
