You can never leave after you say goodbye.

I’m still standing here,

in the inky gloom,

holding onto your last words.

Tiny pinpricks of light-

stars you had called them,

light up the dark of the sky;

but no one can light up the darkness in my heart.


Isn’t this the last farewell;

aren’t you supposed to pull yourself together-

move on.

How can you grow new wings so easily,

when yours are broken,


How can you forget me so easily,

leave me here alone,

to swallow the bitter truth?


As I watch you fade into the horizon,

I know I’ll never be able to leave.

You’ll always find me here,


holding onto the shreds of your last goodbye…
