What Goodbye? – Day 27 of April

The moon and stars witnessed our goodbye,
but my heart must of stepped off the pier for it did not listen to your words.

The embrace and kisses we shared on the pier we stood upon witnessed our goodbye,
but my mind did not stay on the pier to listen to your words.

The breeze and the waves that passed by witnessed our goodbye,
but my soul must of gone swimming in the river for it did not listen to your words.

Instead I took my heart, mind and soul on a ride on a shooting star way out of the reach the painful words you were saying.

All I can remember on the pier are your sweet kisses,
All I can recollect on the pier is the strength of your arms as you held me.
All I can relive on the pier is the love you showed me in your caresses.

So what goodbye do you speak of when the actions do not match the words spoken?
If you even spoke them?

What goodbye do you speak of?

    There is a poignant truth here – saying goodbye to something that was sweet enough to never leave you – nicely done…

    Absolutely stunning both in words and image 🙂

  3. I think sometimes we shouldn’t say goodbye… just be happy while it lasted.

  4. Love that ending line.

    Very thought provoking here — when goodbyes are not goodbyes — or when we remove our heart, soul and mind from the reality of what is.

    Oh I love the repetition of “but my heart”, “but my mind”, “but my soul”… A very familiar story of break ups where actions contradict words or we hang on in denial to those shooting stars of hope. Love the ending.

    I love the repetitions here and how, even in the midst of sorrow, your attention was elsewhere. I think we all have done that. Nicely done!
