Some days

I wait for good bye

It never comes

Some blank silences 
Followed by words
Powerful words 
That should obliterate
Those silences

I’m probably too needy
Probably

Some days
I say goodbye
I’m rarely heard

Occasionally
I’m asked to stay

Always
I’m told no one leaves

Today
I’m walking away
For just a bit

I want a goodbye
I want peck on the cheek
I want a deep
Soul destroying kiss

But today
It’s me saying goodbye
Into a dark night
Filled with silence

And so…

This is my goodbye
