The ending of love

I fell backwards Seeing all in slow motion You standing, you kissing her So our love has run its course This fact sinks in with a whisper As you trail back to me Not knowing I've seen Your stuff is waiting on the pavement when you get back All neatly folded I thought that was the end of that No awkward lies, no need for parting words Just the end.
