Just Say Goodbye, Don't Lie


Unspoken words, silent goodbyes
apparently some good things never last
the obvious is so bitter to swallow
but it’s hard to keep holding on
the path to where it started, unseen
only clear is the coming end

it takes two to tango as they say
and you cannot keep on swaying alone
soon the music of love will stop playing
only the sound of a broken heart, crying
it was a good dance, best thing of its kind
but cannot go on, when you’re left alone

why all the lies, when you can just say
“it was fun but i have to say goodbye
it would be easier and best that way
than to go all through this masquerade
let go of those promises that were made
vows are just done during the best moments
but hardly ever be kept. It’s just the way it is

any dance will last the moment the song stops
and the heart that loves will surely bleed and falter
happiness that used to be, comes pain and misery
so be brave enough, go on and just bid farewell
lies won’t help, it will just add more pain and hurt

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
