The Way Of GoodBye

By cre

tired of the way the sun breaks
when it shatters through the blinds
the dust of passing chapters
lingering inside
a sudden loss of levity
a certain lack of grace
these moments and their memories
forget how things have changed
and I still will cry
adrift within this song
but it's different now
not exactly broken, not entirely wrong
simply winding down
waiting for the fade
letting go of having to be
something someone else has made
and weariness seems
to bring a sort of peace
like warmth to hold the weeping
as they lay aside their dreams
and though this day is long
it will not escape the night
for this is the way of the world
this is the way of goodbye

    tragically romantic in the way that you express the end.The fade out. I loved it. It made my chest constrict with apprehension

    mmm...I think I will keep the feelings this one brings to me for myself. I think I need to tell you how strong this poem is but I don't have to words. Out of hundreds of goodbye poems...this one does not shine...it glows like the moon. ~JMDW~

    I think I relate alot to this poem. You know you allways keep me sitting like I do now. I see so much in many of your poems, that the feeling I get in the end is realy complex, and hard to describe in a comment.

    So just want to say that im truly in love with your poetry. Tiger

  • A former member wrote: "letting go of having to be / something someone else has made " that struck me... oooh... cre... I love this... I love your writes... figured I'd remind you of that.
