A suitcase packed for reasons undefined. She’s trying to figure out what you left to find. A daughter left without a father to explain why he left her love behind and washed the family down the drain. A cold rush of empty mountain air reminds her of fingertips through her hair. And just like you blew hinges off the doors when you went away, so it goes. That devouring silence walking her home, there it goes. She’ll always wonder why with tear filled eyes and empty midnight skies. She’ll always wonder. Like a thief in the night you never even kissed her goodbye. When will you go home? And where did you go? I hope that it burns you alive as you lie awake at night. You’ll never know but she’s fine without you in her life. I hope that it burns you alive. I hope it eats you up inside that you’ll never look into her eyes.
