Blazed, far, the eyes 
That grew; a set of handsome

an invisible hawk
circles an invisible tree
prey could it be me

Sadly, no quantum leaping beneath
our huge red oak tree's autumn sleep.

Nothing stays the same

A quite love
cuts like a blade.

Forsaken cry

Bird’s wings flattering
High in the snowy sky
Mist covered forsaken cry  

Jayaratne Weerakkody

All by myself.
Alone in this corner.
No one to protect me.
No one to comfort me.
Can’t leave.

my footsteps and pain

and cleaning the slate

I should leave

she sighed into his neck.

You cant he whispered back.

You take a part of me when you go

this is all that's left

Short Leaving poem by Dean Maloloyon| Details | |

The Crow


If you love me,
Don't set me free.
Grip me.Bond me.
Chain me!
That I may not
Fly Away.

For if you'll
Let me:

I'll never
Come back.

Short Leaving poem by Mike Miller| Details | |

Leaving Ireland

When the train jolted 
The rain and street lights melted.
Your finger traced sighs
Against the breath-fogged windows.
Love fades like peat fire embers

Short Leaving poem by Janet Cervenka| Details | |

Tanka

Promises broken;
Scattered in the winds of change- 
Dreams forever lost.
Sunlight peeps through the darkness-
The leaving did not break me.

Short Leaving poem by Kaitlyn Avery| Details | |

What can i say

What can I say?
I loved too much
And now
There is nothing
But another
Hopeless day
I’ve lost it all
With no regrets
I stood in line
And placed my bets

Short Leaving poem by Autumn Stallard| Details | |

Disappear

If I disappear would you care? 
If I disappear would you follow? 
If I disappear would you miss me? 
If I disappear would you finally listen? 
Cause I just might.

Short Leaving poem by Autumn Patrick| Details | |

Mind, Body, and Soul

Today I feel,
Like I’m barely there.
My soul seems so distant,
From the body I wear.
If I were to disappear,
I wouldn’t really care.
It’s been a long time coming.

Short Leaving poem by Julia Ward| Details | |

speechless

you have left me 
sans voix
speechless
on deserted road

i see you trudging towards bethlehem
in the wrong season
it's easter, dearie
you are going the wrong way


Short Leaving poem by Michael Walker| Details | |

Paths

Our paths crossed.
Our hearts entwined.

And we knew.

Our love was forever.

Our paths drew apart.
Our hearts became strangers.

And we knew.

Our love had ended.

Short Leaving poem by hija de la luna| Details | |

Leaving

Shades of orange shift
In the distance as I gape -
A passing train drapes my sight.

A grey skyline looms
I am thinking what’s better
A quick goodbye or nothing.

Short Leaving poem by Jodie Williams| Details | |

The Flares

I'm done. Again.
But this time it's true,
release the life raft,
there's no hope of rescue.
Though I see the flares shot
to beckon me home,
nowt seems more becoming
than sailing alone.

Short Leaving poem by Brandy Stallard| Details | |

Nothing

Why do I care about you?
If you don't care about me 
Why do I want you?
If you don't want me
Why do I like you?
When you don't like me 
Why do I have these feelings?
And you have nothing!!

Short Leaving poem by Suyash Saxena| Details | |

Final Adieu

Final Adieu

Let another sun set,
Let another flower wilt,
Let another autumn cast its gloom,
Let another tear role,
As ye part, and bid
The final adieu.

Suyash Saxena
St. Stephen’s college
