A Different Goodbye - Poem by CHARMAINE SIMPSON

As I release from my fingertips, what was an evil betrayal,
from the very start –
I say goodbye.

As the last tears are shed, and wasted,
alongside all of the, emotions sadly also spared –
I say goodbye.

As I look around, and now only shake my head, in disbelief
at the amount of bullshit, that was spoken and lived,
by one sad and nasty person –
I say goodbye.

As I think back, and recall all of the bad feelings, and guilt,
along with the added torment that you created as part of my life -
I say goodbye.

As I now choose to take all of your broken promises, and any
of the feelings I once felt for you, and find a dark empty pit,
to dump each and every one, so far from my memory,
not even near to my heart –
I say goodbye.
