Teaching a heart to pronounce the word goodbye

If you start shaking
And you feel me screaming
And you feel tearing and ripping
It’s just my heart hugging yours goodbye
If you wanna hold your breath and kick and scream and die
It’s just my soul kissing yours goodbye
And I don’t want to stutter stammer or cry but I probably will a thousand times.
I don’t want to trip and fall and make a mess
but I already see my chalk outline and bloody steps.
And I’m not cool, calm or collected
Im needles ripping through flesh.
I’m yanking out invisible cords that make me sick and ache
And honestly at times this emptying is more than I can take.
So if you start shaking
And you feel me screaming
This is just me teaching my heart to pronounce the word goodbye.
