Reasoning Through all of This

by BlueJay   Sep 26, 2017

Darling, entire forests died with you -
especially when you count up
every page I've used trying to heal
my shattered heart and to help guide
your soul into a smooth transition.

Sweetheart, we all wish you well
wherever you've ended up,
but we miss you like crazy.
We hate you and we hate
ourselves also. How could you
have ached so much and
how did we miss all the warnings?

Babe, I wish you could see
everything I wrote for you
leading up to the end -
and I knew it was coming,
I just had no idea how to stop it.

Now all I can do is
hold myself responsible and
write you ten million
different pieces all saying

I'm sorry and goodbye.
