The New Goodbye

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 5, 2012 by dc

Chords of discontentment,
Inconsequential mayhem
And the sweet scented sweat
Of memories reborn.

It was the last night,
The new goodbye,
We improvised badly on stage,
Spat questions and stumbled
Like strangers adored
Drowning sadness,

Old friends laughed
In the corner,
The dead hummed
Their approval
And the city sank
Knee deep
In storm water.

The last note rang loud,
Like a new full stop,
It grew with the wind
And rumbled the beams,
Stealing our breath
And approving our dreams

One by one.
