Goodbye

a poem by

Bradley Alcime

After the sun has risen
In the east
When all the shadows are
Right underneath
From where I stand
Several feet above ground
Looking into the horizon
Am taking my final glance
For I will soon leave
I will board the midday
Train, and ride to a place
I’ve never been
Maybe am afraid but I am determined
Cause after the sun has risen
In the east
And the shadows are no
Longer beneath
And I am now gone
Give my regret to my
Sweetheart
For I am sorry I won’t
See the gender of our unborn

Breakin’up

a poem by

Bradley Alcime

Before you go out the door
I just want to let you know
What we had
What we shared was precious
At least to me as it had seemed
I just want to let you know
When you’re, than out, out the door
Out my life that is
And in the process of your loneliness
And you want to cry CRY!!!
Or your state of happiness
And you want to shout, do so freely
But meanwhile try not to think of me
Try not to let the good we had
Soothed your internal pains
Forget the bad times
And the silly arguments
Let them not ruin your pleasurable moments
For those memories
Won’t be a burden to me.
