    I waited all morning
    before the nothing freaked me out
    as silent distances felt for a hand in the mist
    Of long-lost truths which couldn't reach or shout
    As her eyes sunk low beneath the sky
    Bodies waving their hands held up high into the air
    I could not write for them anymore
    They did not love me. They did not care.
    I have had so many dreams, they became deferred
    Dried up like raisins in the hot sticky summer heat
    The sun, cradled in crimson, the fire from the light
    There is nothing right, so I write...and it's not for love anymore
    It's not so your eyes can read or ignore
    Because I am tired of being someone- on this busy street
    I forget how alone that I am. They pretend it's real
    But it never was. I am as alone I ever have been
    Hello, then a goodbye, before we could really even begin.​

    it's bad I know...

    I quite enjoyed it. Wish you had written it sooner! :) I was looking for a goodbye poem to a friend a few days ago and couldn't think of anything but you said it very well. Thanx
