You Left by Saying Goodbye

An expectation and obligation
What could be said?
Pressure and self-imposition
A crossing of lines by us both

No harm meant
The rules are believed in
Just slightly bent
Although penalties are real

And then you left by saying goodbye
Unexpected and yet convenient
Acquiescence to convention
Secrets to never become secretive

The care was genuine
The unspoken offer real
Trapped by unfortunate timing
Circumstance and hope

What could have been is done
Time multiplied by space
Timidity and judgment have won
Onwards towards the moving on.
