The poetry of Kris Mercer


Swan song

You're leaving here today
so there are no more tomorrows.
Yesterdays are a thing of the past,
so are we
and you're hurting me
so bad.

You're going out now
I've heard with someone new.
Don't think it's going to last.
What do you say
to get your own way
now then.

Why do you have to go ?
What did I do
to make you sad ?
Why can't you stay
just another day.
(Don't let me hear you say
you're going away.)
It can't have been that bad.

Your bags are packed,
standing in the hall.
You can do everything so fast.
Closed the door.
Not here anymore.
At all.
