Dead Leaves




A dead leaf
Reminded me of when
You said you loved me.
Autumn, a season of
Changes and the Fae,
Came upon us with no warning.
We both had a cup of
Tea – me Oolong and you
Earl Grey – when you told
Me you loved no one else.
I thought you were lying
Then and still do now.
The dead leaf
Can never return to its
Previous state; all I ask

Is that it can.
