Look of Goodbye

While you look away and sincerely hope to glance one more time

Without engaging the eyes, or the complexities of an intense gaze

That can convey so many things  and delay the departure 

Yet, wishing for a decent farewell without the fancy words that were thought of in recess

But reflections do not stay on the surface; they deliberate and change the course

During that moment life seems too slow, for the thoughts become too agile

Difficult to grasp a vital change in an instant, as life’s memories are still being interpreted

Ears rely on the echoes of the void and heartbeat rhythms to an uncomfortable track

While it’s troubling to look into the eyes, and a glance is all one can think of 

Courageously trying to maintain that composure when life seems utterly unjustified
