I Did Not Do It For You

I have no one to call by your name.
The years have scram­bled past
and my word for you
has gone to sleep
under my tongue.

The day you left
I shou­ted it out,
from the top of the stairs
and ran down,
hoping to catch the echo
It pro­ved too quick for me.

But wait !
Don’t let this admis­sion
go to your head !
What I did,
I did only
for the sake of your name,
the lus­cious­ness of it,
stan­ding orpha­ned.

I did not do it for you.
