Goodbye

Goodbye

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

You feel strong one day, only to find you're too weak to be strong the other day....

"
Goodbye - 
A two syllable word and how harmless it seems when said on a daily basis. 

Goodbye - 
Feel the contrast of it when being said to you, rather than being said by you.  

Goodbye, my friend, we've hung along for too long.

'Goodbye' can be an expression of goodwill. like 'farewell' - or it can wrap up a harshly firm rejection... For Romeo, 'parting' was 'such sweet sorrow' - but he hoped to see Juliet again. But your goodbye here has a finally about it. It's interesting to reflect how a word can carry so many levels of meaning, intention and emotional loading.

It was, for me...
Good byes are painful, sometimes painful even when you are at the giving end. However, when you realize a relationship is giving more pain than peace, then better let go. Ultimately you are the only one, who can stay for yourself.

I love it .. the simplicity is nice ; refreshing. It allows one to clearly focus on the emotion intended to be conveyed.

I like the contrast element, as well, very fitting.

And the last stanza/line of actually using your previously expressed statements, to further compound upon your meaning.

This piece can also represent the "overuse" of words to a point of them becoming meaningless--losing their feeling ; emotional integrity behind the word(s) being said.

Interesting read; well done.

Enjoyed it and the contemplation which goes hand in hand with such a poetic expression.

Much love,

LR

A well-written juxtaposition on how different a "Goodbye" can be in certain situations. This poem is a bit too "Experimental" but is good all the same. The significance of this poem is not lost on me.

Pretty good, especially for what it is. ;)

With copious amounts of cheese I might be tempted to say there is no 'good' in goodbye then I might apply for a spot in the oldest boy band going.
But, I concur with this viewpoint.
The phrase itself is a double-edged sword - in retrospect I think the wielder of the sword gets hurt too though.
I like the way you concisely penned a universal truth Dr.
