alone-in-desert

When you left me
I asked you, “What will I do?”
You said, “I will take you too.”
I said, “Where?”
You said, “Out of my mind.”

When I am sad, no one feels it
When I am happy, no one sees it
When I am right, no one cares
When I am wrong, no one forgets
In short: you are on your own!
