Leaving Her World - Poem by William Mowell

Standing on top of the world, as his fell apart
Someone left his mind and took out his heart

The greatest smart-ass of the world couldn't see
That you couldn't do anything for me

I broke his world apart with a kiss
Sent him into the great abyss

I may have took you away from him
But you left for some guy on a whim

A roller coaster that can't be tamed
A airline bag that can't be claimed

The leaving kind and nothing more
Some have called her the town whore

I may still have some leaving to do
So I'll be right alongside of you

Leaving all those who loved me
Giving all my love without the fee

But in the morning I'll be gone once more
Looking for a long forgotten shore
