I watched leaning against the doorway
Hard to believe that time had actually passed by
Did we ever meet?
How long had it been?
It felt like years & then…
I wanted to tell you that I loved you
But I knew you were aware
I would miss everything about you
I had accepted that,
At least to myself
A friendly, tearless goodbye.
Nothing left to say
The good & bad quietly stashed away
Everything seemed vain at the instant
The truth would seep soon.
Glancing over my shoulder for the last time
At the epitome of grace, I sighed
A part I preferred leaving unnamed for so long,
Flickered like the remains of a burnt out candle.
But I blessed my stars for a wonder in my life
Having no clue of where time would leave us
I took my first step towards freedom &
My prison of silence.
