Gone Cold

I wish I had the chance to look at you still warm

Like a pot left on the stove

Burners on

Just enough to keep it simmering

Nothing more

I wish you hadn’t been so cold

They say it’s never easy

They say saying goodbye is the same

The only difference is

You said goodbye to someone in tubes

Someone who still breathed

A soul locked behind closed eyes

I said goodbye to a boy who didn’t look like himself

A boy that wasn’t the boy I remembered

A boy that never had the chance

A boy they put in the fridge

And never reheated

Goodbyes are hard

But you had a warm goodbye

I said goodbye

To a boy

That had already

Gone cold
