Terminus

What was spoken
Has been forgotten
Promises have been broken
The eyes give the lie
To what the lips say
Something colours the smiles
That I went miles to see
Someone has taken away
The tree I sheltered under
Leaving behind a sky
With a scorching summer sun,
I feel the earth shift
Under my feet
All words have deserted me
I take the wedding invitation
Greet her weakly
Then jump into a bus
Get a ticket for the terminus.
