It’s not the way we say goodbye
……….as if it were just words
……….as if it were not just words
…..how we mince intentions and try
……….to separate the hurting
……….from the designated survivors
that crosses the bridge
…..over to the place where
……….lasting change has happened
…..and things are done ending
……….and ready to begin.

It’s not the pieces pared thin
……….as if by a scalpel and
…..with hands that feel nothing
told they no longer make a whole
that will decide once and for all
…..that they are better off
…..not knowing what becomes
……….of the other,
…..abandoned half of the soul.

It’s not the pain
…..inflicted as deliberately as
turned backs and shouting can do it
that makes it finally easy
…..to curse the once favored.

It’s not the second time
…..nor the hundredth
……….nor the act of repetition
that makes it the last time.

……….It’s you.
It’s about how much more you can take.
It’s how badly you want the other thing
……….and how much is left
…..of what you had been when
…..you couldn’t imagine it ever
……….falling part, that it could
be anything but redemptive light.
