Acceptable losses

It was in a sad lullaby when the end came.
Apathy creeped in with the rain.
Singing the song of departure, yet time stood still.
As the dismantling of a life took over.
And all love was under the rug swept.
You decided to forget me.
Cutting loose those moorings.
Digging up the root and fresh graves.
An acceptable loss to your stretching wings.
Hoping to soar over all of us.
Yet there is oil licking those feathers.
And though you may have clipped my own.
I know your wings will not fly you far.
My heart maybe covered in the dust of war.
Struggling to beat to unfamiliar drums.
But it still heaves to the thought of you falling from our sky.
