maybe as I walk away
you can hear that small creaking beneath my feet
no its not the sinking floor
or the opening or closing of a door
rather what you hear my dear
is my heart breaking from pain and fear

    Maybe a title might be "departure" Just a thought for this descriptive and emotional piece.
