whispers

tonight i whispered
goodbye
on the wind;
it danced across the keys of
an untuned piano,
and
carried through an
opening door,
and
slivered through
a black, lace shawl,
and
whistled through
the leaves of the
tallest tree,
and
tumbled across shards
of broken glass,
and
dove into the
violent sea,
and
was swallowed by
the dark
before it could reach
you

tonight i whispered
goodbye on the
wind,
a goodbye that
never came
