The Goodbye


Nothing still is on the Earth.
All things shift and change.
Time becomes the stick to gauge
how all things rearrange.
Some burn faster in the dark
While others pace their fall.
Some race to their rebirth.
Others hardly move at all.
So don’t lose your momentum.
Don’t fall through the cracks.
Don’t let the subtle breezes
Eradicate your tracks.
You once produced a fire.
Unparalleled energy.
Incendiary desire, a
Fierce guarded liberty.
Why now so cool and rested
Where heat and speed once pent?
Where there was breath electric
Is vibrance all but spent?
I’ll say goodbye now gently.
Not further sap your will.
Can’t reconcile your starlight
With this cast-off stony still.
