My heart left where we would meet
Through my eyes I see you
Life is like a train,

It's YOU! It's always been YOU! The one I run to when my life is a mess The one that with a single smile kills all of my stree Your the curve in my smile, the glow in my skin

You look Into my eyes and I can see the scorn grow on your face like the darkness onto day you look at me, but it's not me who you see you see the a man a man who you no longer know
She had sadness in her eyes Everyday of her life, And no one knew why. They didn't know The memories that haunted her Each and every day Of her short life.
Happiness and Joy errupt like a geyser at Yellow Stone,

Tears sliding down my face, People stare, But I don't care. Dear ol friend, Left without little goodbye, Tomorrow being a big day, Now gone.
To my desire, As I look over these words that I’ve wasted on you, I realize that I’m only causing the forests’ destruction. Why should I care if you don’t love me?

You're like a faded memory, A distant dream, A long lost needle in the hay. I remember when you were my world. My everything, The rock beneath my feet. But,

On tuesdays, We went to the movies. And I wouldn't trade a dime, To have worked those nights, Instead of eating popcorn. In June, We went to the beach. And the heat of the sand,
These hands, that you once held I gave away to the wind because at least they know how to hold something
You have become an anonymous figure synonymous with: lean lines and shallow dips,Hard firm muscles and sexy dark lips.

I never wanted to write this poem. But I have to because when I look at you, I see someone I don’t know. When you look at me, your eyes are dead. You used to have this spark, this twinkling flame in you.
Would you go back to the start with me? Just for tonight, would you erase our history and the things we said and everything we did and became? Would you take tonight with me and pretend we’re meant for each other?

I could feel her soul fading, her temperature dropping, and her heart beating one last beat.
I crave 'goodbye' a word I never heard, only felt. somehow I think the sound of it would have brought a peace rather than the histrionics of the fade out. I crave the clear cut
Perhaps you can see, How perfect you are for me, Even though you are taken. You’re one of a kind, Although to me you are blind, It is obvious how much you love her.

I always knew this day would come. Goodbye was never so hard before. New days are calling, my dreams still young.

If I could ask a simple favor, from memories I simply savor, I would change my history,

I am on the edge holding to my... breath. My movements are slow... scattered...broken, smashed pain throbs--- My mind is thumping... blood, bled through me. My body is hurt.

See you soon (to Clare and Magdalene) By: Darlyn C. Lojero
One year, five months and six days. the question remains: will she stay?
I've had it up to here with relationships gone south I can no longer stay, you're a toxic taste in my mouth If you put in for me all I had put in for you I wouldn't be here, I'd still love you too
From this distance, The outline of her is only visible. Time has made a small impact, But her coldness has caused the gap I call her name, Only to see her respond to another.
Going through the motions, never to know Time is passing in an endless loop The pattern is broken only by the last stroke The time has come, the last bell rung A lugubrious gathering, the show of an end
It's 7:40 in the morning, Time travels, time flies. Walking down the hallway, with English on my mind.
I am through with this game
Time has held a place in her mind But it moves too quickly now Love has found a place in her heart But it's too painful to bear anymore Happiness has linked with her soul But it never lasts forever

Fifteen, my body curved like a question mark as you delegate my presence to your fingers like a Jesus prayer.
You think of me day and night, To you I am perfect, You see nothing but me. But I see you in a different light, I see now who you truly are, I can see your uncultivated soul.
Back to the pen and paper to write this last chapter. A year ago life as I knew it came to an end. You don’t need a summary, you know… But what you don’t know is how I have dealt, Or rather not…
A smile, A wave, Worthwhile? Mama always said be brave, But Mama's gone away, Sleeping forever now, And my worlds gone astray. I mask the pain with a bow, A courtsey little known,
I noticed you leave as it rained yesterdayWiping the last of your paw prints awayI joined with the sky as the heavy drops fellNow my windshield is bare and my heart is as wellI got home from school and waited for you
Flowing through my classeswalking down the hallspeople start their laughingso I look down as I walkI pity classless filthy trashThat's just the way I feelSometimes I shatter like glass
I walk the halls that grow increasingly familiar Yet at the same time, recognition becomes harder These faces? These people? Strangers. As the years go by, the ones I know Disappear.

Brother and Sister; So close in heart And dear in soul. Only a moment Took one from the other With no villain to hunt.
Even if only until tomorrow or even until next weekend it never gets easier. You learn to cherish moments, memories, time. In the blink of an eye they leave.
I hope you keep your door open I'll hope you continue hoping That life is so much more than this You will see this ain't a goodbye Since I'm telling you from now That I'll never, never forget you

I wasn’t good enough, Didn’t care about your stuff, Couldn’t measure up, Looked at the half empry cup, And decided it was half full, Bought into the lies and all the bull,
I am not a girl Who loses her head over- Some boy- who smiles at her- just so. You caught me by suprise An emotional accident, anomaly
That was the last tear I’m ever shedding over you Cause all you’re ‘I love you’s Were never ever true You never meant a single word you said Every single one was a damn lie
I don't wake up crying anymore. And I'm through trying. It's not that I've been lying. But you don't keep me up at night like you used to. And when the sun shines through my blinds I no longer
I was a PB&J kid. Yes, by that I mean that I liked peanut butter and jelly sandwiches But I also mean that I was, and still am, An S Personality Type.
I long for a chance to know you again, the way I used to.. To know the dark echoes of your heart, and the pools of light that filled your eyes. I wish I could drown in your self loathing
The time is approaching, Summer breeze in the air Clocks are ticking, Yet we seem to not care Friends and parties are on our mind Unfortunately, not realizing, were running out of time
When I hear of a hurricane, that is when I will think of you. A force that drove me insane, and a little senseless too. I admit I didn't love, how easily you caught my eye.
Pen Paper Black on white Flick of the wrist A moment’s goodbye Swimming in my own mind I can get lost in this world Other’s voices, other’s own ways
It doesn't seem like much, but it's been a lot. I've seen you a million moments, but it doesn't seem so true. Ijust wish for one more moment with you. Amillion goes by so fast,
There he is, My lifes torment, School bully. He walks past, Shoves my shoulder, I fall down into a locker. Inside the locker it is dank and dark,
Falling horizontalnow parallel with the A.M., dew drop, grassshovel on the blanketsof hearty, wholesomeearth.
Pen Paper Black on white Flick of the wrist A moment’s goodbye Swimming in my own mind I can get lost in this world Other’s voices, other’s own ways Broken art, puzzle, music – all pieces
Fast fleeing the world from whence i came,the only thing i regret is that of my name,My Final Goodbye will not be so easy,As to just float away on the first chance i get,I love you to much to ever leave,
Sitting on these cold, wet, muddy grounds. Nobody will ever know or feel this but me. Starring at the skies filled with stars, reminds me of the lightbugs back home. My heart beat gets stronger by the second.
How can we say farewell to he of alpha breedWho never came fourth with a selfish act of need?For this white wolf was strong as could be.Now finally the great wolf is set free.
These past few weeks have been strange, I can feel time pulling us in different directions. I'm ready for the change... I think. But goodbye, that's not yet prepared. I'd rather not say those words, because then it'll actually be real.
As the wind whips within my face. The cold sharp agonizing pain brings memories of disgrace.
Why try I try because I want something new. I try because what I wanted was you I try and try, but no longer I do I've stopped trying, but I still think of you. Why try
We've been so close, Yet never close enough. Memories linger on, But to forget is tough. We say goodbye, As in 'see you later', But this time I know There will be nothing greater.
Even flowers that give the sweetest scent Must one day wither away. But will you remember how strong they stood Before their ultimate decay? The future seems full of many days
It's not about the ending It's about what happend in-between The walls are coming down The end is almost near To say goodby is a fear But to have been able to say hi, I'll always hold near
It's a law of physics what goes up must come down Everything that needs to happen will some will die others will mourn But life will go on of this I'm sure Goodbye isn't forever
I think I want to stay forever And be leaving all the time. I want to keep changing in this familiar place Until I run to the edge and falter. I want to leave at midnight
Rapid goodbyes said Traveling to new unknowns Car drives yet heart stays.
Grew up with a lot Obscure path I’ve taken Opportunities were astounding Dependence fleeted Bye to you all Yesterday is remembered Every day from now on will be new Start of my next journey
Leaves of green are rustling in the wind But I sit inside and must rescind Everything I felt for you Was it necessary to betray me I see now that I never will be The one who has your love
I finally gave up, Gave in. Stopped lying to myself. We weren't getting better, we never would. Your insensitivity, Too much for my fragile heart.
Sestina: A Sister's Farewell Even on the weekends I find myself at home— Not with friends because being with my sister works. Our stories and adventures, at times, incite tears.

"Sam, call 911." my brother, 8 at the time, looks up at our dad. Sam's face is clouded with fear and confusion. "Right now Sam, call 911"
I just gave my valedictorian's speech. I just heard my name called. My friends, my family cheers wildly. I shake the principal's hand. I turn my tassel to the right. I am officially a high school graduate.
Before you go, can I tell you this. That you were blind and oblivious. Can't you see? That you were always a part of me. Don't you know? That I love you with my entire soul.
What could possibly be said to comfort those left behind? Everyone clings to thoughts of their own. But what would she actually say to those in this moment? You know she did not agree.
Our simple goodbyes were the wind Swirling around our clasped hands, Around your closed eyes, your chapped lips, Your balding head. It lingers in the room Until you can add to it no more.
Eighteen years, wow, it's almost here The moment we have looked forward to all our lives So close that we can reach it with the tips of our fingers Apprehensive, yet excited, we're starting our lives soon
I used to pray for times like this graduation day upon us the people we used to diss we miss the people that were a little different the ones who were a little less significant we wanna be there but we cant
I always saw the good in good bye Because I hated saying hello I knew that people’s duty in life was just to come and go.
Her breath is the tide Gently it roles in Swiftly it crashes away Those precious blue eyes Have become dual grey moons The canyons in her wrists Fill the puddle around her
Hello beautiful girl, That's all I can say to you, Cause tonight is our last night together, Unfortunately it'll have to do. Pretty soon you have to go, As yet again I fall for you.
This is your year to leave the nest Your mother cries, Your father cries, Wishing you all the best This is the year you must look after your own health Time to take the claws out and fend for yourself
If only… You had stayed a little bit I could have held your hand Given you a kiss And a proper goodbye. If only…
Inevitable. My fate is inevitable. That last sweet goodbye will cling to my mind like moss to a tree for the rest of my life. Sometimes that moss is so beautiful. The tree's greatest quality.
The colors fade, the leaves they fall A few last notes, the music now Ended But oh! How it soared, How sweet was the song that swelled Within When my love was your all!
(poems go here) Saying goodbye is the hardest thing I have to do. My feelings for you won’t ever change, I just hope you know, I love you too.
Like a wave crashed down The tide pulled my soul My sister so dear Never made it to old The emptiness grows The pain won’t subside The unseen affects When you commit suicide
Dear Anthony, I'd like to set aside order for a moment And what's inadvertently thought of as important To spill my heart on a palette With words left uncalloused Waiting to engrave
Why have you given and then you taketh away? She was here and now she's gone. The warmth still lingering from her last caress. Her laughter only just echoing out of existence.
Started with the bright sunshine staring down at me Waiting for the strong heat to pack on in, so sweet Wind in my face, music blastin’ through the speakerphone Every day chillin' it, never seem to be at home
Going to college and leaving you behind Will not be an easy thing You are the love of my life My first, my last, my everything
Only pictures capture the happiness Of a love that used to be. Frozen in the frame, Torn by shattered glass, And stained with the blood of a broken heart. Deleted from existence.
How do you know for sure this isn't the last time you are going to hold me tight and let me dance on your feet?
It was on an usual August day This story is not easy to say Without getting all teary eyed Knowing it was my last goodbye
I’m honest with you, My loyalty is gold. I stand up for you, I was yours to have and hold. But now, it’s different, Now, I’m hurting ten-fold. The day I committed, The real you showed.
As I’m listening to the rain, As I’m going through this pain, I remember the day, When the world stopped for me.
Close your eyes Feel the breeze Hear the wind In the trees Shed a tear Say goodbye Life is flying Right on by New beginning a fresh start Leaving home Breaks your heart
Your hand holds mine so tightly I think you might crush it But I know we both need it Our hands are an anchor To know we're both there There for each other There forever in each other's hearts
Dear mom, Thank you for your guidance Thank you for your smiles I am sorry for my defiance But why won’t you let me go 1000 miles?
Calm and low the engine hummed, Singing its incessant tune, As they glided down the road, Under the placid moon.
She thought she was invincible 19 and young Invincible to the cops Invincible to the shots Invincible to a drive That took her down a road late one night She ran from the cops,
Linda, I know everything’s going really fast! Just don’t worry about the past, the future’s going to be a blast! Congratulations on graduating! Now it’s time to do some navigating.
