She Never Said Goodbye

by Larry Chamberlin   Mar 15, 2017

"Went out the door without looking back,
you'd think a demon was on her tail;
didn't take a thing" just fell through a crack,
"knew this marriage was ready to fail."

"Haven't seen her, haven't even tried;
don't care where she is anymore.
what friends? think she always cried
so much they thought her a bore."

"Welcome to look" won't find a thing;
"check the basement and the attic;
all she left was this diamond ring
tell her mom stop giving me static."

Finally they're gone - without success;
showing them all is the neatest trick;
act betrayed and show no distress;
let them see I don't give a flick.

Ha! I'm the one who suffers here,
putting up with all the whining;
good riddance and let's all cheer -
this leaving has a silver lining.

After all, why leave a body
lying about just to be found
such loose ends are so shoddy
instead she's sex slavery bound.
