He said it better than I could have.


An apology
For all the times
That I lied

And a secret
For all the whispers
That made you cry

A kiss
For every girl
Who took your breath

And a wish
For all the ones
Who didn’t last

Copper,
A penny
For your thoughts

And ink,
A pen
So they don’t get lost

Some whisky
Some brandy
To deny your denial

The truth
Do you remember
The last time you smiled?

Darling,
My love
You’re soaked in deceit

A single rose
For you to hold
Until the thorns break free

Sunglasses
A mask
To disguise your sin

And a heart
My love
To fill your tin

I owe you
The world
But I’m bad at charades

I’m tired
And I’m losing
And I can’t play this game

Let’s play cards, Love
You’ll win
One last time

Because last
Is a note
For you, signed “goodbye”

When love isn't enough, what can you do but say goodbye?
