The Hardest Goodbye

The one uttered but never heard.

The unexpected one,

that nobody saw coming.

The one that socked you in the stomach,

and left you doubled over in pain.


The one that sat in the pit of your soul,

asking for your deaf heart to listen.

The one that crept up behind you

when you were not looking

and bashed your heart in.


The one that took the daydream rainbows

from your mind and smashed them

against the jagged edges of reality.

The one that slipped through your hands

without you noticing that things had changed,

and nothing was going to be the same.


That goodbye.
