” SAYING GOODNIGHT WHEN I SHOULD SAY GOODBYE “~by Martin Gedge


 

 

POEM ” SAYING GOODNIGHT WHEN I SHOULD SAY GOODBYE ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: 1 person

To sit here in silence and stare into dark

should I follow my head or follow my heart

I’ve been through the trials the thick and the thin

I’ve tried walking out but you dragged me back in

I can’t keep a secret or hold onto a lie

by saying goodnight when I should say goodbye

you can call me a fool for the way that I feel

but I’m not into faking so I’m keeping it real

there are no more questions and I’ve made up my mind

you have all the answers stop wasting my time

what more do you need is it closure you seek

so little words spoken and your posture is weak

we are all out of focus and our goals aren’t the same

we can’t keep on pointing when we both share the blame

it’s a road too much traveled and we needed to bend

through the highs and the lows and the bumps never end

there is more to look forward then back in the past

though a future uncertain I know we can’t last

so we pick up the pieces and we hold in each part

of what is left broken as we blow out the spark

and closing the door with all the feelings curbside

I stick out my thumb and wait for my ride

not one second guessing that our love was a test

I knew what was right and I did what was best…
