Musings on Abandonment

abandonYou said it wasn’t abandonment
(You just knew I had went)
You said the freeways have more exits
(Oh, are you still perplexed)

I said honey, please
(Honey’s just for bees)

Don’t abandon me
(You’re already history)
Don’t abandon me
(Oh, you stole my sanity)
Don’t abandon me
I got the abandonment blues

You said it was the futility
(Oh, I should have said misery)
My nights in Brooklyn are darker now
(Oh, I can’t see why or how)

I said honey, please
(Honey’s just for bees)

Don’t abandon me
(You’re already history)
Don’t abandon me
(Oh, you stole my sanity)
Don’t abandon me
I got the abandonment blues

    This should be put to music. Please do it. The poem was rather moving, very human in the emotions. I’m not sure why, but your words spoke to me tonight. There’s this element of pain, very strong, but it’s nothing outright, more subtle, but the subtlety gives it such a strength. Very nice work here.
