No Escape

Sun, 07/20/2014 - 02:18 -- hduane

I need to move into the city

somewhere I've never been

somewhere where there aren't 

memories of him.

Because the loneliness

in well known places

the silence

with familiar faces

haunts me every day.

And I haven't slept

a single night

since he went away.

There's not much I can do,

there's nothing I can say

I need to get away from here,

but still, I yearn to stay.
