Hate to let you go
Our life till now has been
high drama in a show
We both have given up on
trying to make things right,
all we do is fight,
stuck in a hopeless plight

I wish you wouldn’t go
But wishful thinking’s
not enough to make it so
Now it’s time to say
goodbye and part our ways,
look for better days,
but first I need to say …

(Chorus)
I hate to let you go
Before we say goodbye
there’s one thing
you should know
I always will remember
everything we had,
the good times and the bad,
the happy and the sad …


Hate to let you go
Our lives in shambles but
our memories still flow
We tried to mend the rift but
nothing ever works,
our smiles turned into smirks,
we both can be such jerks

I wish you wouldn’t go
but wishful thinking’s
not enough to make it so
Now it’s time to say
goodbye and part our ways,
look for better days,
but first I need to say …

(Chorus)
I hate to let you go
Before we say goodbye
there’s one thing
you should know
I always will remember
everything we had,
the good times and the bad,
the happy and the sad

And I hate to let you go …

vita 5d
the breeze of our whispers linger with me always
keeping me warm, keeping me quiet
for who else would I want to talk to?
while our night was a fleeting eternity
the prayer of our goodbyes still coos softly
providing comfort to the small of my back
which has been freezing since your hand left it
a genuine work in progress!
You may not have been a lifetime partner,
But you’re a lifetime experience
In another lifetime

My eyes can't unsee what I have seen
A dying man sat in front of me
His mind was battling the inner demons inside,
He thought he could control his psyche and swallow his fears

His hands clasping so tight to his open chest
The shadows on the wall reflected a sorry state of his sorrows
I wanted to give him more hope,
But I stood there and froze
Awoken by his vulnerable presence

His large eyes became pallid and sunken,
He dazes into the distance fighting to breathe,
He could hear the demons howling his name,
I tried to hold his hand which became rotten and decay,
He whispers the words 'I can't do this anymore' his hollow face sank to the floor
My heart fell into pieces as he closes his eyes,
I didn't want this to be our last goodbye

The summer heat welcomes heart rate
The affection I show, you negate
My heads burning up
My hearts breaking apart
You never know how cold the last goodbye is
Until you’re buried alive
Frozen in the middle of July
Shhh. Can you hear it?
People are cheering for my sacrifice
Well, okay, so be it
I absolve my parents of the upcoming filicide

Gods cursed me with my looks
They cursed my mother with sinful pride
Ignoring punishment for hubris described in books
She sentenced me to die

My youth won't save me
Gods won't be appeased by regret
It is, as it should be
The Fates have cut my thread

So, I'm going with my head held high
I give my life for that of my people
The sand has run out, the hour is nigh
I am not a goddess' equal

I can't tell you why.
I can't tell you how to say goodbye.
But what I can tell you
Is I'll be here to hold you
if you need to cry.
And if you need to be alone,
I won't be far.
Just on the other side of the door.
And when you need it, I'll remind you
They're still with you
Even if they're not here anymore.
I will hold you in my heart
That way we never drift apart
I will see you in my dreams
And keep your memory
Locked inside my brain
I just hope you do the same

By this pen
I wrote my first word
Little did I know then
That it would
Also write your adieu too
Hey!! how are you all?
Its been a long time
Is there a faster way to get out of here?
Is there a faster way to forget you my dear?
Cause I've been holding on to you
When I should be letting go of you
So tell me is there a faster way
