i will not bother to call you
i will not bother to write
i will not bid good morning, never mind good night
i will not smile bitterly
at all that I wish you knew
or pretend graciously
that I am blinded to what is true
i will not stand still and waiting
frozen forever on Someday Isle
in silence thick, suffocating
hidden behind such a charming smile
i will never again dream
to be the tempo of someone’s song
the score is empty now, pristine
and my voice at last all gone
i will care no more forever
for you or you or you or i
with nothing left to treasure
and no more tears to cry
we barely said hello….
and for some
that means goodbye
