Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

saying goodbye

12 August 2013

saying goodbye


saying goodbye, hardly ever my choice,

which somehow makes it easier sometimes

to placate that angry inner voice


saying goodbye, beyond all of the rhymes

can still rip away a part of my soul

in love there are no victimless crimes.


saying goodbye will always leave a hole,

no matter which person says it first

in some small way we are always less whole.


saying goodbye sometimes seems like a curse

but it can be a blessing in disguise

when hindsight proves staying could have been worse.


saying goodbye can often make us wise

because letting go is all we can do

when we can no longer live with the lies.
