"One can't complain. I have my friends. Someone spoke to me only yesterday." -Eeyore

He said it better than I could have.

An apology
For all the times
That I lied

And a secret
For all the whispers
That made you cry

A kiss
For every girl
Who took your breath

And a wish
For all the ones
Who didn’t last

A penny
For your thoughts

And ink,
A pen
So they don’t get lost

Some whisky
Some brandy
To deny your denial

The truth
Do you remember
The last time you smiled?

My love
You’re soaked in deceit

A single rose
For you to hold
Until the thorns break free

A mask
To disguise your sin

And a heart
My love
To fill your tin

I owe you
The world
But I’m bad at charades

I’m tired
And I’m losing
And I can’t play this game

Let’s play cards, Love
You’ll win
One last time

Because last
Is a note
For you, signed “goodbye”

When love isn't enough, what can you do but say goodbye?
