this is the stuff my nightmares are made of

you said goodbye
like you meant it,
and that is
the scariest thing
i have ever
encountered.

a goodbye
devoid of all good,
a farewell
to my wellness.
you were ready
to make your getaway,
exit stage right,
disappear
like steam,

and leave my skin
cold
and my heartbeat
broken,
erratic and faint
as the echoes
of a song
you once loved,
but can’t remember
the tune of
anymore.

this is the stuff my nightmares are made of, j.f.
