Goodbye

Goodbye

A Poem by DeliriousCerises
"

An ode to who I used to be, and feeling disconnected from who I am becoming. Kind of a narrative on personal growth.

"

I killed that little girl

The one staring back at me

When I shattered her face


A case of the Humpty-Dumpty

We put her back together

As everything she never wanted to be


I fell in love with that girl

And then she ran away with you

But I'm hollow because I killed her too


She haunts me on stormy nights

In salty reflections

Until my eyes run dry


Then I wave goodbye

To that old shade of me

When all is done and said


Now this girl is all I can see

A stranger staring straight ahead

With empty eyes and a familiar smile

Just a ghost of the dead

A very strong write. Just loved this piece. I was wondering if something like this might be coming:

Then I wave goodbye
To that girl I used to be

as amazing as it sounds I wrote something like this entitled: "My Heart I Fill With Love (story song)" you might enjoy checking it out.

Congratulations on placing in the "Deep dark poetry contest"

just loved this...
