I Didn’t Mean Goodbye

Never said the words

Just wrapped myself in the silence

That being without you produced.

Swam in the river of tears

Made when I realized

You’d never call me again.

This many years later

I sit here wondering if you knew

I didn’t mean goodbye.

I meant I was angry at the moment

That maybe our silence for a while

Would fix whatever we had going on.

When I sent visions to you of myself

Left words that you couldn’t understand

Under pillows scattered around the room.

Since now I haven’t heard your voice

In so long I wouldn’t recognize it

I want the chance to say hello again.
