Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying

How far down the rabbit hole dare I go
When moment to moment emotions go from
Not giving a fuck to loathing
Disbelief, numb to heart broken
I know what true grief is and this isn’t that
Death isn’t a choice unintentional heartbreak
Walking out is a decision intentions are clear
This is somewhere between heart, soul and ego
Love and loss?
Love and betrayal?
Love and reality?
Reality and bullshit?
The rabbit hole is beginning to look
– more and more enticing
Idioms fill all the empty spaces
Where words of love and loss roam
Throw caution to the wind
Throw the baby out with the bath
Caught between a rock and hard place
Letting the cat out of the bag
Letting someone off the hook
Bygones be bygones
It’s always darkest before the dawn
…and I wonder was it?
Darkest before the dawn
As he slipped away?
Quiet as a cat
Me, blindsided
Fooled and forgotten
Don’t let the sun catch you crying
