Tell Me Why We Can’t Go Back


      Tell me why we can't go back
      to how we were before this mess
      you're leaving me. Cold and black

      the words recited as you pack:
      verdict, sentence, more or less,
      but tell me why we can't go back.

      Did what I give so badly lack
      what you were wanting? Must be yes,
      you're leaving me. Cold and black

      our bed, like ash in burlap sack.
      So lasting felt our last caress,
      so tell me why we can't go back.

      You're cutting me so little slack
      attempting to my faults redress.
      You're leaving me. Cold. Black.

      Tell me why. I won't attack.
      Tell. My heart will acquiesce.
      You're leaving me so cold and black.
      Tell me why we can't go back.
