Nobody - Poem by Gary Revel

Nobody came to see me.
We sat and talked all night.
The things we said came easy,
Until the first of light.

Then terror gripped my body,
And flight took to my soul.
I'd said things to nobody,
That gave up all control.

My mind was such a bargain.
The deal went all the way.
From babe, to the deadly sin.
I lost it all that day.

Nobody came to see me.
Nobody came to stay.
Nobody lives inside me.
I had to move away.
