There’s pain again high up in the jaw by my ear,

Pain that is  foolishly aware that  I am speaking a certain truth.

Yes, I took the job but did not like the work.

It seemed that I should do that, somehow

saving a scene in the dimming sunlight,

I’m working now as I nurse my aching jaw

thinking of loss, seeing the sun go down,

I love you tell me as I rub my aching jaw

why you let my love go, why did you desert me

when the sun went down.

verb. Desert is defined as to leave or abandon someone or something. An example of desert is a man leaving his pregnant girlfriend. An example of desert is a military person leaving their post without permission.
