Right at the corner


Goodbye was hard

I didn’t know it’s there

Right at the corner

Of the doorway

Where I lingered

For a kiss to stay

There forever

Even when I’m away.


Goodbye’s been hard

I know it’s there

Right at the corner

Of trembling mouths

Cracked lips sound

Like rifts

In the clouds

Skies choose

To breathe

And so they’re parted

And filled with



Counting the days without counting them

Because goodbye is here, and goodbye’s still hard

Harder and harder as I grew to see

More means less, and less and less of me

Means it is just what it has to be

And maybe what will be

Will truly be

And maybe goodbye

Is just goodbye to me.
