by Jeph Johnson

She swears up and down that the gaslight has dimmed 

When it's clearly shining brighter to him. 

The only person in their right mind

Is the one whose memory gets left behind 

Abused yet responsible,  dysfunction becomes

Words cried from the rooftops mum 

Take love, for instance, it isn't at all 

What brings us together, it's how people fall 

The glow of a gaslight that burns over time 

Cannot expose a fictitious crime

Or validate an account overdue

Or prove false what she saw true 

He knows in his heart, that he never lied 

He loved and protected, and kept satisfied 

Her body to hold, and caress and to feel 

Unfortunately her mind wasn't part of the deal
