Effortless


It’s easy for you to promise
and not commit
just throw a bone
and exclaim “get over it”

It’s child’s play in saying yes
just to excuse yourself
abandon all thought
and exile yourself from a life

It’s simple in stating that you’re busy
never worry
not looking sideways
just yourself

It’s effortless in not talking
but the truth is
I need you, your voice, your soul, eyes
I need your fleeting kiss
just so I can withstand time

Adieu
