Long Gone

A silent whisper in the dark

The night’s so long not far along

Her aching gut says something’s wrong

The lies she tells herself

Nothing, there’s nothing wrong

Her heart exposed, raw and vulnerable

It races to catch the air

As it’s no longer blithe

Seeking to wipe out the incertitude

The muddled mind plays vile games

Disoriented, longing for the long gone

She lays bleak until dawn

Love,

Hiba
