Two for Tuesday prompt

goodbyes

will our paths cross again
will we act as though
we are strangers on a train
will i be able to breathe
again in your presence
or will my heart stop at once
for the pleasure of your smile
will time stand still for us
to catch a glimpse of the sun
to stare at the stars
will there be a moment
a hesitation of the soul
for the final goodbye

Goodbyes are ever so difficult. I liked the last two lines very much.

Cross out old memories

This is so poignant. It reminds me of those tough times after the end of a relationship where you are unsure of your heart and its possible reaction to running into someone it once held so closely.

Leigh-
I just love this.

It's so raw and emotional but restrained. I know there is something more you didn't say - and I love that!

Thanks for sharing it - wonderful!
