Thoughts of You Leaving



spinning wheels,
spinning rooms,
spinning tunes
and lullabyes,

broken sticks,
broken hearts,
broken parts,
broken records
and broken trust,

dead last,
dead past,
dead heads,
dead beats,
dead and dying
memories of you,

trusting souls,
trusting people,
trusting times
and times of evil,

sweet smells,
sweet goodbyes
sweet truths mixed
with lies,

better days,
better ways,
better off
without you.
