Sitting here in the dark
watching for the fires last spark.
Breeze blows under the door
ruffles the papers on the floor.
Another day has silently past
you know for sure it’s not the last.
In the end you made your choice
not that it’s a reason to rejoice.
To hurt anyone was never your plan
but you started to think you weren’t a man.
Unable to provide for your family
you started to behave irrationally
They tried to placate you
soon realised there would be no break through.
You left to give them peace
so they could get off their knees.
Alone now you wish you could rewind
to a time you had control of your mind.
