Forgive me for I couldn’t dance
to all the tunes you played.

Always so coquettish
for some time I was entranced
but tired of the game
The never-ending chase.

In the small hours
a light came on
and I reached higher
than you can fly.

‘Rise up, rise up.
You are worth more than this.’

I turn from staring
into your abyss
and walk away.
