Desolate and yet enchanted by your loss,
I am your Boss no more.
Haunted by your memories,
You welcomed me like a queen and yet it was You that was royalty, loyalty was your middle name.
What’s in a name?! What’s in a name?!
I can’t play this game anymore. How I long to see you if just once more.
My Little omnivore,
So proud you walked, commanding the day and night. Now, I cry me down to sleep
For you lost the fight. In-flight to somewhere else.
Perhaps with someone else,
My journey now alone is long and the chains heavy on my feet
Like a sheep, you sleep
Alas, the angel has arrived and taken you in her arms; I pretend not to understand, I unfriend, condemn, my selfish soul resists the end
I implore you to return my dear Friend,
But the Raven scratched at my door for the last time, and now I will see you
