Quiet Goodbye


amber layers rest upon goodnight,
while an obsidian anchorage awaits
confusing darkness with light
might have been her first mistake
nothing comes from a starless sky
but an endless plea, more questions
left naive, with no honest answers why
sweet girl, that’s how this always happens

  1. This one runs nice & deep ~ the winning line, “nothing comes from a starless sky” ~ that alone is a piece of poetry. A quiet goodbye is always the one that lingers the longest (as in years), and that is felt here as well. Beautiful words Audrey Dawn ~ you do not disappoint.


    • You’re pretty remarkable at making me blush. It isn’t normal, what you do, you know. They’re just six words, Dalo… but somehow, you romanticize them to a whole new level. I haven’t mentioned in awhile how poetic I think you truly are. Goodbyes are hard, for sure. And I like it when you use my full name, Randall Collis. I see your eyes looking at mine. I am just a lady. You make me feel like a poetess. xx
