I don’t know how to say this.


For once, I’m speechless

because you left me without words.


My empty mouth

shutters at your stare.


I dare not utter a goodbye

in case you respond to it

with a harsh retort.


I cannot take your cruelty anymore,

but I know I must walk away

before you scar me for good.
