The Leftovers



We have seen love and the opposite. 
We drove miles for something leading to nothing.
We are the leftovers.

We seem full but we ain't.
We dreamed and woke up to routine.  
We are the leftovers.

We promised and showed our backs.
We wished for more than we had to.
We are all the leftovers. 

We traced the moving stars till we fell asleep.
We looked for the moon in the dark night. 
We are the leftovers.

We learn but won't share.
We love but won't express.
We are the leftovers.
