Love tries
‘Til it tries no more
‘Til it falls and crawls
Across the floor
And the laugh that rang
The final bell
Echoes these halls
Like death’s cool knell

I heard
‘Til I heard no more
‘Til I fell and knelt
Outside your door
And I waited there
For any word
To indicate
You may have heard

But silence met
My straining ears
Heard only the blood rush
Pushed by fear
And purple bruises
Stained my knees
While my heart broke ‘neath
What you’d never see.

Me.
