The day you left I was
in sight of the airport -
by coincidence only -
I knew that since you
hadn't told me goodbye,
because you had not
left me anything but alone,
because there were
no fond words,
no parting wishes,
and certainly
no longing-to-stay
last glances through
rushed terminals -
because of this
absence of remorse
for making me love you -
I had not seen you off;
I had not told you goodbye;
I didn't even know
what time you were leaving.
I watched for hours;
afternoon followed morning
as my eyes followed
each flight and
each vapour trail -
I could have kept vigil
for months, for years -
wondering which one
carried you away --
and which might
bring you back to me.

thanks for the welcome, I'm always a little shy to post on these pages, but everyone seems really nice here.

Welcome to Passions. A broken heart makes for good poetry, no? Why do beginning relationships feel so good and ending relationships feel so bad. I wish there was a way to fix the endings so they wouldn't hurt so much.
