My Abyss - Poem by Randy McClave

I shook her hand and then I said goodbye
I severed our relationship and she did cry
I walked one way and there she stood
That is how I let her know, she was no good.

I could have said farewell with just a kiss
But then my soul would had been in an abyss
Kisses are intimate and designed for the beloved
Not for the strangers, or the unloved.

I walked away with just a handshake
Quickest way to ease or forget a heartache
We met as friends now we leave as strangers
I said goodbye to her and also her dangers.

I shook her hand and then I had left
My honor and my pride was her only theft
Then when I was gone I felt a tear in my eye
It was the same tear that told me to leave, and why.
