She Stepped Out of My Life (Originally Untitled) – Written October 2010 (Aged 35)

She Stepped Out of My Life

she stepped out of my life
like the ghost
that wandered into my room
and left
but left too soon
like the sun that leaves
in the winter afternoon
she was there, claiming
that she needed direction
but we never made the link
lost connection
i guess the menu was too crowded
and i was not a selection
i was wondering
why she made the claims
that she did
so beautiful
had all the suitors just hid
surely they must be plentiful
and ready with their bids
but she stepped out of my life
before we even lifted the lids
who am i trying to kid?
