Since you declared your emigraton from my heart,
the world has suddenly gone quiet.
I no longer see the stars,
and the dark nights are now my worst enemies;
as the bogeyman has taken up permanent residence
outside my window.
In place of all the sunshine, the laughter, and the high hopes,
a very uncomfortable silence now sits in my heart.
And eventhough I still wake up at midnight
to lock the door I keep open for you,
I'm left wondering if we once were.
