5 things

from by Braver



I see a sky that's gray.
It gets dark so early.
A woman stares at me, she seems to want to say something.
So I pretend to sleep.

My back broke so early, but it came back to me.
You put your message in my hands, I showed it to my eyes.
It only said five things.
I love you, and goodbye.

Still staring at the screen.
Wondering where I've been.
Is that my face reflected or some well worn-in disguise?
A tribute to the fool...
I love you, and goodbye.
