Inevitable Goodbye

By , san francisco, CA
My eyes, they blur
With tears
Yes tears
Unwelcomed yet still so near
As I try to say my last goodbye
And look up at the volatile sky
Yet time ticks on
Laughing
Tick
Jeering
Tock
How it will not cease
Please stop
Tick Tock
For me
Tick
For you
Tock
Stop
For a moment
Please
This moment
Please
So that I may breathe

I am on my knees



The laughs
The cries
Memories gone by
The warmth that once lie

Before you and I
But now all remaining is the melancholy blue
That stands unwelcomed and dauntingly new
Wait
Only in front of me, now I see
For your choice to leave was made freely

Tick
Tock
Goes the clock
It sings its awful mocking song
Waiting for no one
The pain still weighing a ton
Stop you incessant, indifferent...
Variable

Tick
Dimension
Tock
Just pause
So that I may wipe my eyes
My tears
And breathe in
And out
And remember

Where are you going?
You do not know
It is hard to focus
When I have no control
Over time
Over you
The capacity of our memories
Tick
Tock
Not willing to stop
But we can…

I am stopped
Are you?
Stop for a moment
With me
Please
To breathe
In and out my friend
Simple
Yet important
Relax
I have poured myself out
Over the years
What is left of myself today
Over the months

Vulnerable I admit
Into these seconds
I have let flood
Out here
For you
Myself

I stand here in only my skin
I want to scream
I hold back cries
I wish these recollections were all lies
I wish not for what is true
That I never met you
But as we promised
No regrets
And we refuse to ever forget

Cherish what is old
Welcome what is new
Even if the only thing I want back is you
I cannot control the future
Tick
Or erase away the past
Tock
Even this moment is escaping us so fast
I shall pretend for today
That now is here to stay
And that this inevitable goodbye
Is only but a lie
