She couldn’t explain
What went wrong, what had happened
Why after they parted
He had completely forgotten.

The promises he made
The plans that they shared
After all of this time
He just didn’t care.

It was hard to imagine
That he’d just walk away
But, he closed the door
He had nothing to say.

He never looked back
Just got out of bed
Had no second thoughts
No guilt or regret.

He had met someone new
So easily replaced
Any memory of her
Was gone, was erased.
