You ask me why I walk away
I’ll tell you why I cannot stay.
Yesterday I loved you,
Today I don’t.
Yesterday you were sweet and warm, too good to be true.
I loved your words, I loved their font.
Today, you’re ice cold.
And sour. Not a sight to behold.
Yesterday, you shone like gold,
Glowed like the princess in a fairy tale told,
About horses and princes, beauty and myth.
Today, I remember
The sad saying about things that glitter.
Four words I can muster
You. have. no. lustre.
Yesterday, you were full of stark colour,
Bright red, brighter yellow.
Today, all I see are shades,
More than Fifty shades of grey, Shades of a dirty careless spray
Of black, brown and the opposite of gay.
What can I say?
Yesterday, your scent
It felt like it was sent
From heaven’s garden
You smelled like rosy pink and ocean blue
Today, when I stand next to you
I smell decay… I’m through.
Yesterday, you smiled
Your eyes wide and I said that was cool.
But now I know you only lied
And today I feel like a fool.
Yesterday is only a day ago.
But today, today’s the day I go.
