Bedtime Story

I’m in my bed clothes
Ready for heaven knows
Because my life is unhinged,
Off course, don’t know where to begin.

You left me
Alone, for all to see
Maybe I deserved it all
But I can’t stand up after the fall.

The humiliation left a hole
And I can never get back the life you stole.
Bye bye love, I sing
Wondering what misery tomorrow brings.

I lay my head down and pray for sleep
Hoping to revel in the dreams I keep.
Stay gone, stay gone.
I see clearly now that you never belonged.
