‘And now that I am gone away’

‘And now that I am gone away’ 19 Sept. 2015

 

And now that I am gone away

None must know that I am here.

I was a color in days gone by,

I was a madness, a love, a fear.

I was a something with a name,

Something we all understood.

But now I’m nameless, now unclear

None knows if I am bad or good.

It’s only I who now knows me—

What I am now, or was before—

Just I alone on my balcony

Not waiting on the ringing phone, not waiting on the knocking door.

It’s only I under the sky,

And none must know I lie beneath.

I was a cloud in days gone by

And drop by drop I’m now the sea.
