How to say goodbye? He asked.
Close the door and never come back, she said.
How to explain the farewell? He asked.
Give them a smile and say you no longer want to be around, she said.
Wouldn’t they think that’s a lie? He asked.
She smiled, her hand gripping the doorknob like it’s the one last thing that kept her from the freedom she sought.
If I did this, would you think it’s a lie?
And then she left, leaving darkness behind her like a sun that’s running away from the winter storm.
He realized too late that a goodbye had been spoken.
