Never Been Good (Poem)



Never been good at saying goodbye

and I'm still this way,

leaving you in bed still sleeping,

as I slip into the night,

taking all of the shitty baggage,

hoping I hadn't tainted you.


Screaming at myself in my head

wondering why I can't stay,

but I know if I don't you'll never be happy,

so this is my own way of saying goodbye

without uttering a word,

indicating all the reasons why I've never been good.
