    you should have told me you were going
    i wanted to stop by the record store
    rinsing my hair
    i didnt hear you grab the keys
    washing my hair singing
    "have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart"

    i didn't get a chance to say "I love you"
    in a whisper then kissing your precious lips
    like I always do
    smiling to myself at every thought of you
    feeling the tingles trough my body
    your good at what you do

    Last night I was wrong.

    I'm gonna make it up to you...promise.
    it'll be a surprise, somethin' new

    planning to cook your favorie meal too
    tickled watching you lick your fingers
    with satisfaction

    rehearsing what ill say in my mind
    to kill the guilt
    weighing me down inside

    who is this at my door this early
    I hate when people show up unannounced

    "Its officer Brown ma'am". I hear a voice shout.
    "Can I come in and speak to you."
    "Yes... I answer in a low uncertain tone"

    All I heard in my ears was
    you leaving me all alone

    I was mad at you
    How could you!
    Why didn't you tell me you were going out
    I shouted

    I cant breathe
    wishing I said sorry sooner
    wanting your embrace

    wishing I'd kissed your lips before you left
    wishing I said sorry last night

    A pain overwhelming blacker than black
    deeper than the blues
    wishing I was there and I died with you.

    wanting to escape the pain
    i cried in a ball on our porch... as it began to rain.

    A reminder if you love the people in your life let them know often, and never take them or each day with them for granted, but make it the best you can. They can be taken from you at a tick of the clocks hand.

    the pain of sudden loss.
    sometimes we pay the cost of
    the screams of anger
    the silent voids
    times when relationships are TRULY hard
    thinking 'bout the here and now
    and not the future
    wondering what it's gonna take
    but knowing i wanna to be wit'cha

    and then

    LOSS.

    never easy.

    wanting to take back the harshness of our words
    ...to relive the last things heard
    to open our hearts to the truth that's there
    to share my love...and be fair

    GOOD BYE isn't fair.

    WELL SCRIPTED.
