I Don't Want to Say Goodbye

.

You never said goodbye

That night when you left…

You turned away

You walked away

You said our path could not be yours.

And you vanished

But you didn't say goodbye.

.

I woke the next morning

Alone—you were gone.

I'd begged

I'd pleaded

I said I loved you with all my heart.

But you left

And didn't say goodbye.

.

The next time I saw you

So little had changed—

Those same eyes…

That same face…

You said my name the same way…

You disappeared again…

But you didn't say goodbye.

.

I've watched you go so many times…

But you've never said goodbye.

.

…I couldn't say goodbye…

When I forced myself to leave,

I saw your face…

I saw your tears…

I said my thanks. But I couldn't stay…

…Maybe next time…

We won't have to say goodbye

.

This is just a little poem for sasusaku that I wrote when I realized that Sasuke never says goodbye when he leaves. FYI the POV changes right before the last stanza, just to clear up any confusion.

Review if you like, sorry if you don't. Sasusaku 4eva.
