To Say Goodbye
You said goodbye
And I could feel my mind churn
At the probable possibilities of what we'd become；
Strangers at best
Or much worse
When we'll meet in the hallway
And not so much as share a stare
Not even a cold one in the least
Hearts frozen in time
Like snowflakes in frost fields
Empty eyes and lost souls
Devoid of any kind of feeling
With no hope of insurrection
Sad smiles with creases all over
More of indifference than emotion
We'd be wildflowers with thorns hidden inside
Impassive, apathetic souls
Oblivious to all except the beating of our hearts
The only sign we are alive
Scurrying this gruesome animateness
Living but waiting to die.
We would simply be creatures and nothing more
If really it was goodbye.
So I'll tell you to unsay what you said
And I'll undo what I've done
We would let goodbyes die on our lips
At least for now
You would eventually leave
But please, not now.
Let's cope with each other for a little more while.
