Balcony-Night Blues

Balcony-Night Blues

Why do you leave me now?
At a moment when I needed you the most.
You were always so sickly amiable!
I guess you were right; we were just
A cliché, star-crossed lovers.

Upon this balcony, staring at you;
Tears swelling at my eyes,
Kissing my cheeks;
True blue skies have vanished;
Now shineless,
Leaving the droplets famished.

Lewdness shrieks once again for two:
Did you witness,
The vulgarity that infected you?
Did you witness,
Everything I did to/for you?
I don’t deserve this, this treatment.
Or, do I deserve this?
I might not have tried my hardest; but
Instead, I wish for you much less.

Upon this balcony, I see you walk away;
Tears swelling at my eyes,
Kissing my cheeks;
True blue skies have vanished;
Now shineless,
Leaving the droplets famished.

Must I play the part of some King;
One disowning his daughter
Because her love was too great?
Oh, how I hate these roles we play!
Does it have to be
The same thing day n’ day?

I look at this void—this balcony;
Tears swelling at my eyes,
Kissing my cheeks;
True blue skies have vanished;
Now shineless,
Leaving the droplets famished.

Do you truly believe
I owe you anything of me?
You—young mind of the Lithuanian
Who had the world turned against him!
You—blue blood of the innocent lamb
Who is being sent to the slaughter.
You—who will be the one,
Who will be the one that falters?
—You!
Falter! My friend, falter,
And fade away into oblivion.

Now—

The darkness shall consume you;
Leaving no one on this balcony but—;
Tears forever gone from my eyes,
Maybelline on my cheeks,
And a makeshift smile for the weak.
The Blue skies shine once again,
But not for you my friend.
