A FINAL SONG
– Gloomy N.
Her: I am no longer the little girl you used to sing to.
I’m more of a woman now from where I have been to.
I cannot dance anymore for your silly tune,
Make a mess and call me a loon.
Him: You aren’t the only one who’s all grown up.
Yet, here I am, acting like a child in a play of dress-up— *gestures at his clothes*
Her: What an idiot! Can’t you see?
I’m finally happy as I could be.
Please, dear Poet. Leave me alone.
I’d like to venture forth to the unknown.
Him: Then live with me—-
Her: And be thy love? *expectantly*
Him: No. You already are. *blushes*
Though let me sing a song to you once more before I depart.
I’m missing you and I’ll be missing you still…
This hollow ache in my heart shall never fade and will always will.
Her: Then sing to me a final song.
I haven’t had an all night long. *sadly*
Him: *starts to sing*,
There was a girl
Who I truly loved.
She had a smile like rainbows.
It made me laugh,
It made me cry,
It made me gushing out strange vows.
Yet life was hard,
And life is strange.
I was a fool, much more deranged.
I lost her once,
I lost her twice,
I’ll lose her now like rainbows.
Her: *turns away*
I may have lost my voice and the will to write,
But lady please hear me out.
I may not be that other guy
But please let me be your lullaby!!!
Her: *walks away from him into the streets filled with people. She stops. Looks behind her but was disappointed to see her only friend disappearing into the shadows.*
