There is nothing that's not me" -Rumi

As we said goodbye.
I felt my heart go.
Thump, Thump, Thump.
As it pumps in my chest.
Nervous hands tied together
Like if being held a hostage.
Thoughts knotted together.
As we say goodbye to our forever.
We were both quite like a feather dropping.
Not one of us talking.
As we said our goodbye.
Not with words but with silence.
As our time came to an end.
With one final glance at each other.
We started walking away.
In that moment I was both lost and found.

The author's comments:

I wrote this piece, in hopes that people could be able to relate to it in any shape , or form. It didn't neccessarily had to be aimed toward romantic love, but a more abstract love you could have with anyone else, Like if you said goodbye to a loved one that died, or a friend that moved away. I wrote this poem so anyone could relate to  the feeling of saying goodbye and being left both lost and found at the sudden loss of that relationship.
