Simply Say Goodbye

I never really lived without you.
Every day's another day in which
I can't let go. Wanting, needing,
fighting through the tides of one
goodbye that still refuses to be said.

The dream has been contaminated.
Love has trouble breathing in
the heaviness of shadows cast.
Your absence is the heaviest
of all.

You never call, you never come
around, not anymore. You tell
yourself it's easier that way.
Each time you feel your heart
strings humming, reaching out
toward me, you make another
grand resolve to leave me far
away.

And yet,
you never really lived without me.
Every day's another day in which
you can't let go. Wanting, needing,
warring there, inside your very soul.
Wishing and desiring the love
we used to know.

And still,
you haven't found a way
to simply say goodbye...
