Lauren

I couldn’t pay you to stay.

Lauren had to leave.
Lauren had to go.
Lauren is no longer here,
and now you’re on your own.

You have no way to contact her.
You have no way to chat.
You have no way to circumvent
that she will not come back.

Listen to the silence.
Listen to the walls.
Listen to the coming wind
as Summer turns to Fall.

Your pain is unintended.
Your pain is her regret.
Your pain, no longer her concern,
is what your trust begets.

Lauren had to leave.
Lauren had to go.
Lauren had to walk away,
and now you’re all alone.
