The summer lasted longer than you did

Where did you go?
Where did you go
How long were you planning
This doomsday?
I'd like to know
Why did you leave?
It's selfish to say
"I want to go too"
Instead of
"Please stay"
But we all have a little
Of selfish in us
Is that why you did it?
What was it like
Staring death in the face
I want to hear your last thought
Your last breath
It's been years
Where did the games go?
Did you pack them away
Along with the rest of your things?
I'm waiting
For everything to drain out of me
So were you
Except you ran out
A lot quicker
Quicker than I thought
Your smile held nothing
My pleads meant something
But it's too late
It's too late
Please, please, please
Don't be gone
In loving memory

This is quite a personal piece of work that I had written. It is a bit of a mess, but that's kind of the style that I was going for because when I had experienced what I was writing about, that's exactly how I felt. Like a mess of some words.
