She kept calling your name as you pretended not to hear.
Your hands filled with a love you lied about.
A love fading into the dark glow.

Finally, no choice but to look back.
Wait for me, you said.
Your lies made me smile with the decision
To make you miss me instead.

The lies are just a game
I’ve played before.

Into the darkness I lept, all the movement
Motion and disappointment.

Your silhouette in the photobooth
Left and right, you searched
I could see you from afar,
just a drunken fool.

And I smiled as you finally located
Me.
Coming back.
