All She Leaves Behind

All I ever wanted….

was to see her smile….

She arrives every morning with her little black case…

I spend hours of my day staring at her glow in the sky…

Until I can’t take it any more and I have to run away…

Tears running down my cheeks and my heart bursting in flames….

This can’t go on forever, I go back later in the day…

She already packed her robe in her case…

Prepared to leave my world, she says one word…

“Let me drown…

I am in the water…

You can’t save me…

Let me drown…

I am in the water…”

All of a sudden, my small town becomes the darkest of all places, filled with her ashes and debris…

And the moon comes out to sooth my sorrow…

I go back to the train platform to wait for her return…

Hope to see her the next morning is all she leaves behind….
