I said goodbye

I said goodbye to you,

in a time of dark forgetting,

on a deep, tea-drenched day.

It was a place for endings,

for halting in the mind

all memories, all knowing,

of who you were

and I, who hardly knew

who I had been, or even was,

so rubbed and faded

by the moments we had made,

so blurred by brightness,

cruel and unexpected.

I said goodbye to you,

and knew myself forgetting,

on a deep, tea-drenched day.
