To Say Goodbye

“Sweet, so would I, 

Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing, 

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, 

That I shall say good night ’till it be morrow.” 

Elena's edit.

What a thing, I say, to say,

Goodbye.

You breathe petals into my ears,

Hum bees into my heart.

You crystallize

In my fragmented mem

ory

Asymmetrically

There is nothing but p

oetry

What a thing, I say, to say

G

oodbye.

Shades of olives and lemons bite my cheeks

Bitter and sweet like

Oh, you k

now

what.

“Please don’t go, I need you whole, 

I love you so I love you so.”
