When Goodbye Is Forever

I didn’t realize
that goodbye
really meant
goodbye.

Forever is a long time
to go without a friend
that you’ve been with
forever.

And now i’m all alone.
And now i’m always sad.
And now i can’t tell you
When something makes me smile.

I go to the beach
and wander past the waves
and feel the sand
as it pushes between my toes.

But you aren’t there.
You were always there.
Just me and you.
And now i’m all alone.

I don’t know how
to say goodbye
when goodbye
is forever.

The Line

cross the line

I look at my poems

and realize with fear

that it is I

.   not you

who will mess this up.

This nameless thing

we have,

.   but don’t have.

I’ll take a step back

across that imaginary line

in order to save

.   us.

It Isn’t Love

It isn’t love.

Just because i think of you

randomly

and thoroughly

throughout my every day.

 

Just because i smile

when you type my name.

Just because i wait up late

to chat with you.

 

Just because i plan my day

around your schedule.

Just because my heart flutters

when i see your name in my email.

 

Just because i dream

about things that will never happen.

Just because i ask God

why i feel the way i do.

 

That doesn’t mean it’s love.

It isn’t called love #poetry #poem

Our secret relationship ended

even though it never began.

I fell for you once again

knowing i couldn’t have you.

 

The pain is inside

where no one sees

but you.

 

The tears fall down now.

I am alone

still.

 

You are lonely, too.

 

We discuss

wants and needs.

We talk about vows

and promises to God.

 

We don’t tell anyone

about these feelings

whatever name they have

Just so it isn’t

called love.

I just

 want to know you

though I

 can’t feel your skin.

 

Don’t think

 it’s something deeper.

Don’t back

 away from me.

 

I wonder now

why i left.

I wonder why

it did not work.

 

But time

 for me is warped.

And i

 have no mem’ry

Except

 for your kindness

And your

 pure love for me.

 

It all

 could’ve been different.

I just

.  want to know you.

Somebody that I used to know #poetry #30in30 #make30

Somebody that I used to know.

Someone that I crushed on

As a kid. He never knew.

 

Now we chat.

Now we flirt.

Now is different.

 

Perhaps it was wrong.

Perhaps it can never be.

 

But it was fun.

And I like to talk

And be more honest

Than ever before.

 

Thank you

For being

Here

And giving me

My own place

In your world.
