Of Ways To Say Goodbye

Of ways to say goodbye
I've mastered them all:

A weekend disappearance
That left an orchid on my door
With an 'I love you' note

Daffodils at train stations
Drawings of New York instead of spaghetti
Passing spirits, a bit of fate 

A midnight massacre
An unarmed catastrophe
Bitterness in that aftermath

A friendship based on alcohol
A diamond in the rough, 
Some comfort from the storm

A platonic affinity, trying to replace
All that was lost but it wasn't there
How devastatingly lonely

Of ways to say good bye
I've mastered them all:
In the most fucked up of ways
