Why Did He Go Away


He was her world

She put him

High on a pedestal

Never to offend him

Never to annoy him

He began to deny

This lofty position

Which puzzled her

He saved her

Gave her a new life

How could this be

Then he grew distant

He seemed to become

Ambivalent towards her

She tried to cling tighter

It only drove him away

Silence became deafening

And she felt alone

Like she had

For all those years

Before he changed her life

With just one question

“What’s wrong?”
