goodbye = believing in leaving

goodbye = believing in leaving

A Poem by cl8thegr8

it speaks for itself

velvet ropes and silken bows
things you want
raw and exposed
forgetful and cautious
lessons planned
and never put in motion
wanting to ignore
the slightest satisfaction
or approval of your actions
knowing more than ever
only in your dreams
that things could actually be
free and clear and perfect
craving only this...

the strength to see
how much you almost meant to me...

but where the knife fits
and where it sets
and where you want it be
between us both
facing me

a grinning blade to dull the pain
or cause another heartache...
how does it work
when you're too far gone
or believing that you're safe?
a morose phenomena
a black masquerade
that's falling hard
falling fast
and showing on an epic face
questioned and conquered
by saving grace
or saving more than the look you gave
the day i walked away....
