final call

who's left standing

when love goes south

and you're far north

with no way out

when it's gone

and disappeared

while on your face

are bitter tears ...

who's left standing?

the artful game

of cat and mouse

is over now

without a doubt

the easy lies

with cleverness said

turn to a cold pillow

and an empty bed ...

who's left standing?

the final curtain

on the empty stage

will go down on

the love we made

i won't sit down

or quietly leave

and though it was only

make-believe ...

i'm still here ... standing.
