of the long goodbye

I held my breath

for a little while

& you did not notice

being caught up

in what you wanted to say

not realising

what your words were meaning

today was the start

of the long goodbye

& who was i

to hold you back

slow up those dreamings?

I took a breath

gave out a smile

though I knew certain

there were other things

I’d be holding onto

from now on
