Word of the Day: Atone

Why is it that you roam

Leave me here to cry and moan

Thinking you may not come home

Is this how you want me to atone?

All mistakes we both have made

In a black or dark grey shade

The way we sneaked around and played

Did what ever feelings bade

Now you leave and say goodbye

Leaving me to always try

To hold only memories of this

The scent of sheets, the longest kiss

I guess it’s true what they say

For every sin, you will pay.
