Goodbye can take many forms. Emotionally, physically...I'm at a crossroads, will be for another while. Crossroads I am breaking. I am drowning. Yet I still walk on, this path I’ve disgraced. To afraid to walk off it, for pain has been too friendly of an ally. I’m afraid of myself. I’m afraid for myself, and the damage I can cause, should my restraint slip and fade away completely. Though I stay silent now on those fears that never did fade way completely, it doesn’t mean I’m in full control. It doesn’t mean I won’t hurt you, because I know I could, Be a burden like I’ve always been, And isn’t it time I relieve you of it? Isn’t it time I go? Isn’t it time I let you be? I know I’m slipping, I know I’m falling, Plummeting towards a bottom all too Familiar, Like Morning Star’s inevitable fall from grace. I know who I am, I know how this life will end, And though it appears far off, And it is, It is there, waiting… Darkness is waiting to take its daughter home Shadows for now, accompanying me. Right now, I walk in fog, Wander through the crossroads, Through woods that reflect truth back at me, With cold yellow eyes. Right now, I’m writing this goodbye, Though I won’t be truly gone until you realize too late, That I left, I walked away. From you being tainted by me.
