Look Back

Wed, 10/04/2017 - 21:14 -- 007968

You didn't look back

As you sped away, my heart turned black

Heavy and hollow, it sensed the coming pain

My sun became rain

Love down the drain

You didn't look back

I love too much

That's what you said 

Sorry I'm not a robot, although I'd rather be dead

I watched you leave 

But you didn't look back

The lack of eye contact was an attack

I screamed your name in my head

Craddled my heart as it bled

Come back

You never looked back
