Let’s play

People people leave me be
Don’t try to quell your guilt by putting my hopes up
That you’d be here for me
I’m so naive to take things so literal

People people leave me be
Turn off the lights and close the door on your way out
Close it properly
Don’t leave it ajar
I don’t want the light from the hallway to seep through
I don’t want halfhearted attempts at hope
Like you did my heart with your facile words

Leave me to my darkness
The one thing I know like
The back of my hand
Like the back of all those who walked away
When I never even invited them in to begin with

Respond to Let’s play

Fire away!
