Say Goodbye

Sitting alone, just trying to be okay.
Hiding from the constant frays
that other people seemed to love.
Their anger was explosive
in a subtle, charming way.
The weakness was reclusive,
in an aftermath of extroverted haze.

Sitting alone, just trying to be okay.
Wondering what happened to
the pleasantness of days gone by.
Another tear, another sigh,
for all the loving innocence
that had to say goodbye...
