A poem from Seasons & Elements...

I got a phone call from you today
and this is what you had to say -
"Sorry baby it ain't workin' out.
Being in love is not what I'm about.
Don't tell me you didn't see it coming."

So with the phone up to my ear
I say to you, "Listen here.
Don't tell me what I did or didn't see.
You leave my reality up to me.
Besides, I don't need you anymore either."

But the truth of the matter is
my whole world has shattered.
I'm so upset I could cry
but I really have no idea why.
What did I do to deserve this?

So I pack up my bags and grab my keys.
I decide that right now I have got to leave.
I change the message on my answering machine...

"I'm away on vacation from sanity.
Please leave a message after the beep."
