“The Unspoken Goodbye”
by Mary Magdalene Rynjah
It started just like any other,
You and I, page after page-
One spring till the other winter;
Like birds freed from their wooden cages,
Soaring high for the clouds above.
The time passed by with no regrets-
You, I and the billion stars above;
And just as the cold winds blew by,
I stood there with this cold bitter loneliness.
I was no longer your beautiful DOVE.
Bitter sweet memories stayed cold as ice;
Leaving a bruised flower behind-
Never to be touched again,
Sweet delicate essence; a dangerous vice.
But now I see a clearer picture,
You wanted the stars;
And I, an ordinary creature.
With unspoken rhythm of doubts
And innocent gaze of displeasure-
You said your goodbyes
And walked farther away to find another.
