Portraits Poetry Series #26: She Said Goodbye…

Portraits Series
She walked away
In the rain
And he could see it
Slow motion details
But the view was blurry
Every detail stuck in his mind
The way she swayed
The clack of her heels
On the pavement
Her sad, gray umbrella
Lifted high
To refuse one last look
He was broken then –
But no words could rise
She had said goodbye
But his throat was dry
His voice cracked
No words escaped
And the remnants
Of everything he had worked hard for
Poured forth from his heart
Spilled from his lips
Fell from his eyes
Inconsequential
Mixed with the rain
And vanished
Like the sounds of her clacking heels
The smell of her perfume
The feel of her embrace
She faded from sight
But the ache was still present.

      So sorry to hear that. It can be a painful time, but know that what is not, is never meant. Keep striving – the right one will come along.
