Out of the shadows you came
To remind me to put the cap back on
I kept forgetting to put the cap back on
Leaving my mess on the counter
For you to move around
Like move around it
Not move it around
Because it was mine
My mess to move
Not yours
And when I finally moved it
My mess neatly tucked away
You went away with it
Finally too
