Genevieve Leaves

She sits
In the seat she sat in
For years

As she thought
About her dreams
And her fears

Hoping,
Thinking,
That maybe
Someday

She would
Be able to change
To fly far away

To another place
Where she is safe
And has a home

But this day
Will never come
She will always be
Alone

Genevieve knows

So she cries
One last tear
And then stops

She walks
To her baby sisters crib
And her heart drops

As she kisses
The sweet little child
Goodbye
For the last time

Genevieve sits
At the kitchen table
And writes the letter
Explaining why

She has left
And gone away for good
Never to return

Genevieve takes one more look
At the place she has lived for years
And hopes that, finally,
The longing will cease to burn

I love how you never come out and say for sure what she's doing...
