(Poetry) Japanese Inn

Japanese Inn

Once,
But never again,

I put my trust in you.
And what did you do?
You just turned and walked,
Turned....and walked away.

Walked away.

You threw me a smile
And that good-bye look.
Laughing as you left
Through my door.
Straight through my heart
Without a prayer,
At all.

You told them

Of our last secret
Without even touching the wine
They tried to give,
They were told to give.

Now as I pass
The Japanese inn,
Where the legend unfolds,
Janey’s diary is opened
For all the world.
And the secrets come out.
And the last secret,
Is told.

Once,
But never again,
I put my trust in you.
And what did you do?
You just turned and walked,
Turned....and walked away.

Walked away.
You threw me a smile
And that good-bye look.
Laughing as you left
Through my door.
Straight through my heart.
Without a prayer,
At all.

And now you’ve spilled
Innocent blood.
And instead of a letter,
Instead of Eden,
You inherit the wind
And the colour
Of the moon.

Now you live in sweet danger
As the sun sets at dawn.
Now it’s not only make-believe
That’s coming for you,
It’s the ruins of tarot,
And the wind
From the moon.

Now as I pass
The Japanese inn,
Where the stolen kisses stand,
Janey’s diary is opened
And the world understands
Why secrets,
Sometimes should remain untold.

I put my trust in you,
As the smile leaves your face,
As you read the words.
As you cry alone.
As the sun comes to an end,
And you scream it’s not true.
It’s a wicked heart that’s hidden
As you dance to the tune.

I throw you a smile
And that good-bye look,
As I walk away,
As I walk to Eden,
Without a prayer at all
For you.

And a sad wind
Blows from the sea.
