Shadows and Goodbyes

I said goodbye,

and your blink never happened.

You missed it as my face closed,

and the shadows within my heart,

shuttered over it, inflamed

by your indifference

and your missing awareness.

I remember the moment that

my goodbye became final,

when I realized that no matter

how hard or how long I knocked,

you simply

did not have enough

for me and

for what I needed to chase

these shadows holed up in

this heart.

So, goodbye.

When you wake,

I shall be gone

into the shadows.
