Goodbyes

Why do people leave?
How can they just leave without even say goodbye
Because leaving without a goodbye is easier
Saying goodbye is hard
If you don’t say it, it’s like you’re never really gone
But when friends just leave with no explanation and not even a goodbye

Its painful

They don’t know the kind of pain the kind of loss you feel
But maybe they do
They left, it probably hurt them to gobut they left
It was their choice that silenced my voice
I didn’t even get to say goodbye
