    dotsIn there somewhere, was goodbyedots

    Some life experiences bring a finality and an inner chaos that would not relent. Hence the jumbled imagery and tones. Hope the points carry across, subtle or otherwise.

    In there somewhere was goodbye

    Shoulders slump as footsteps fade into
    the darkened hallway; out of sight.
    Then a click-sound of a door, shut;
    punctuates a chest-heaving full-stop.

    Regret now seeps across the
    tidal plain, waiting in vain hope
    for a reverse ebb that doesn't arrive.
    Regret, only regret remains:

    Strain and hear that inaudible sigh
    as you lock lips in silhouetted embrace;
    It was the kiss of a toxic cocktail--

    It's the burnt smell of rubber
    that lingers thick in the air after
    the smoldered wreck on the road.

    It's the ping of a pin dropping
    after a grenade had been lobbed
    and the afterthought of my diving --

    But did I dive to shield you or
    was it to duck out of the way?

    Regret is the sound of pebbles
    tapping off a casket lid as they
    bounce from a cascade of apologies.

    Still that door clicks shut -- the last time.
    Your footfalls fade into the bright,
    searing light of the pain that is left behind.

      Feelings can be so strong and sometimes incapable of being detailed into things that can be so prevalent in all of our lives, you did a wonderful imagery of such a "loss" and I think everyone can relate to the emptiness colored in your words and I love that I got to share in them, thank you.
