Goodbye, with love

I’m going to say goodbye
for all our yesterdays
those golden framed moments
still glistening, for now
but if we continue
down this destructive path
yesterday disintegrates
the future catches up
as we keep running back
to a toxic time
slipping out of the palms
that used to hold the world
caresses turn to scratches
a warm hug becomes dead weight
words sharp, subtext laden
the opposite of how we were.

So I’m going to say goodbye
so I can say goodbye, with love
I’m going to say goodbye
for all our yesterdays.
