Unsaid goodbye

October 25, 2017

She said she'd miss me.
"think of all those good times" 
I nodded, smiled, didn't know how to say goodbye so I delved into the past.
I grinned despite myself, "remember the burrito dance?"
she laughs,
keeps saying it's not over, that we'll see each other in the weekends, the holidays, 
"more fun times to come! You haven't escaped me yet Jenny Parker!",
I try not to cry,
I make her promise to text me, phone me, snapchat me, email me, 
then we do our handshake of 4 years, since yr7,
"4, 3,2,1 carrot potatoe cabbage pax".  

we don't say goodbye.
just walk away

    Sounds like a fun relationship. And then she leaves . . . . this has happened to me before.
    Keep up the good work!
