I threw down behind me

A trail of breadcrumbs.

My love, in little bits

One piece at a time.

He would follow

I knew he would come.

But nobody told me

Black birds would flock

That they would hover

Over crumbs I had left.

He couldnt find me

Though he may have tried

Or maybe he stayed home

And changed his mind.

But how can I blame him

When thats all it was worth.

Really nothing more but

Breadcrumbs on the ground.
