Once Goodbye

We are on the phone
You say those words
I think I hear them
Again! and again!
You say it. Goodbye.

From you reasons roll
Fall on my ears
Escape my hold
None will still
To explain them. Goodbye.

Tilting the room
Graying our world
Stealing my breath
These dozens confuse
Such nonsense. Goodbye.

Except for this
One soft whimper
Your voice stops to weep:
I am hurting
Loving you hurts me. Goodbye.

I hear you my love
How it breaks you
So I say those words
Returned this once
My last time. Goodbye.
