I Thought It Was You...

Getting My Hopes Up

By Samantha DonPublished 6 years ago 1 min read

The door slams shut

Footsteps on the stairs

I hear them getting closer

Almost at our door

I hear a key rattling

Fumbling in the lock

There's someone standing out there

My heart suddenly stops

In a second my dreams are dashed

It's our neighbours next door

Not my love home at last

I keep praying that it's you

That this is all a sick joke

You're not really gone

You're just running late

But then the hours tick by

And the tears they silently fall

You're coming home

Never again, no more
