Safe

I don’t know you anymore

I cannot remember

the last time I felt

safe

next to you.

I don’t know you anymore.

You used to be my shelter,

my home.

Now

I don’t know you anymore.

Uncertainty

is the name of the game

we have been playing.

Who are you going to be today?

The man I met

or this unpredictable stranger that

seems to have forgotten that you love me.

That you used to love me.

I don’t know anymore.

As I drive

I don’t feel as if I were going home.

The cold has seeped in.

We are freezing.

There’s no safe place for us.

There’s no comfort for us.

Our love,

gone.

Our passion,

vanished.

Soon

I’ll be gone too.

What I do know,

is that you don’t care anymore.

I’ll leave

towards the moon.

I’ll leave

to be alone.

I’ll leave

and learn to be without you.

I’ll leave

to remember what it’s like to be me.

I’ll leave.

I’ll leave.
