And So I Died

I am not here, I have disappeared
because never was there an hour
that you cared.

I waited in an empty house,
year after year, hoping you would come
to build a fire with me

Every I second I delayed the walls faded
the hearth disappeared
my organs failed

Now you stand and cry
but you did not love me
and so I died.
