"Hello," "Goodbye," and Silence
Hello, awkward smile and short texts.
Hello, fluttering of the heart and grape cool-aid.
Hello, a**holes and feeling.
Hello, conversation that ends on me.
Hello, fighting, but never crying.
Goodbye, giving a chance.
Goodbye, holding hands and not caring.
Goodbye, smiley faces and morning breathe.
Goodbye, locker romance.
Goodbye, 24 hour conversation and big city visits.
Silence, unexpected touch and scarred shoulder.
Silence, love that never can be.
Silence, balloons and 4:13 A.M.
“Hello,” “Goodbye,” and Silence
