A voice familiar,
Moves me no more
I harbour no feelings
Autumn leaves bless my feet
I know not how to love you again
So don’t come knocking on my door.
You mutter sweet words
But I am unswayed
A future no longer robbed by memories,
I loved to the moon and back
And stay put where I find myself
So don’t you come promising me the stars.
Bound to you no more
Shackles broken, I am free
I can love again
I embrace the new found hope
Because you are dead to me
And I have you buried under the autumn leaves.
