You had me at Goodbye
I remember you,
My person as you were.
I could see how sometimes,
A few emotions are just so much connected to a single person that they live along and die as that person leaves.
Now, I carry graves.
How you watered lilies and waited for roses to blossom.
How you knew everything, every time
Until, it was too late.
How you made promises
And I kept them always
Only to find myself holding the most volatile designation in your life.
I could see how people lie between those true lines they say.
How you knocked,
Till I opened up
And you watched the blood, flood away.
You smirked at my smiles
And I wished for moments like those all the time.
You bought me a cake
And stole my hunger away.
Oh My dear person,
You had me at the goodbye you made.
As you left,
I watched your foot prints fading away,
For several, several days.
Until, I collected all the love I gave away
Pieces, like burnt pages
My own soulful emotions in lifeless shapes.
You had me at that goodbye you made.
