As You Leave

January 16, 2019

FREE WRITING

Time
seems to slow
as I watch you leave:
each step heaving,
laden with neglected memories
to the pounding of my heart.

As your figure shrinks
before my eyes
shadow stretching further into the distance,
I beg for tears to fall
because I cannot bear
to watch you go;
walking out of my life,
away from our hopes
and dreams.

But no tears come to blur my misery
and my feet are leaden,
shackling me to the airport tiles,
forcing me to watch
as you leave...
as everything stops -

Even time itself.

    this is so lovely and sad... the very idea of begging for tears to fall is tragically beautiful.
