Goodbye

Lick the envelope,
bid you a farewell.
Melancholy smiles
mute the words I yell
.

Holding the letter
that carries my thoughts.
Logic in answers,
yet feeling distraught
.

Handing it over,
receiving my own.
Thankful for moments
with lessons now known
.

Taking unpaved paths,
detached and set free.
Leaving your presence,
returning to me
.

Reading this letter
helps me realize.
My ultimate peace,
is the valued prize
.

Goodbye and farewell,
hope life grants you ease.
May you find your way,
flowing with the breeze
.

Bye

Bidding a farewell.
Moistening the envelope,
that flies with the breeze.

Detach

I will not impose on your new life,
just need to know if you are alright.
Did you remember to turn off the lights,
and turn them back on when skies dim at night
?

Sorry to impose but I need to ask,
was this always you? Did I love a mask?
Does your heart still feel or has it turned black?
When did we become just another task?

Regret to impose, but just one more thing.
Now that I left, do you whistle and sing?
Have you discovered you now have new wings?
Is life much better, since you cut all strings?

Can not impose, with my eyes set on me,
no made up visions of what we should be.
Standing on my own, firm like a proud tree.
Floating like a wave that travels by sea.

Disperse

Opening of heavens gates,
one look at you,
led to my fate.


Took your tiny hand in mine,
you grabbed my heart,
clouding my mind.


Cushioned you from any scare,
missed once or twice,
but always cared.


Turned my love into despair,
resentment shown,
was always there.


Twist of fate with links unshared.
mud on my face,
our bond impaired.


Ring my ears with screeching howls,
my voice a hymn,
you hear a growl.


Memories come to say good bye,
they comfort me,
under blue skies
.
