LEAVING IS HARD

LEAVING IS HARD

leaving is hard  

Leaving is always hard;  

Because while it’s inevitable,  

it never forewarns.  

 

Leaving  

sneaks up on you  

like a snake slithering in the grass  

or the deadline of that assignment.  

 

Leaving  

sucks;  

Because it means that what happened was temporary,  

and all that’s left is you.  

 

Leaving  

means that  

you might forget,  

even what you swore would never be forgotten.  

 

Leaving  

itself  

is quick:  

The packing of boxes,  

the final embrace,  

the kiss goodbye,  

the last toast.  

 

But leaving  

has to happen;  

Because without leaving,  

there can be no beginning.  

 

Beginnings that make leaving so hard once again.  

 

Saying goodbye may feel impossible,  

but it isn’t;  

Because with every goodbye comes a new hello and that hello may be even better than the last.  

M.R.
