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

Nothing stays the same
remember yesterday
A quite love
cuts like a blade.

Wasted Leaves

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

Forsaken cry

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

Short Leaving poem by Christian Guild| Details | |


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

4:44 am

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.

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 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 | |


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 Michael Walker| Details | |


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 | |


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 | |


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.

Short Leaving poem by Sami LaRose| Details | |

Short, but Not So Sweet

Sometimes I miss you
And when I do, I wanna kiss you.
But I know this is out of fear,
My dear,
For you are not there
Nor shall you ever be again;
I think our “love” has finally come to an end.

Short Leaving poem by Brandy Stallard| Details | |

Could I start over

Could I start all over 
Forget my feeling for you 
Leave you behind 
And not feel a thing 
Act like there was nothing between us 
And just move on 
could I forget everything 
Could I start over?

Short Leaving poem by James Dooney| Details | |

Ego and Life

Ego rustles.
It wants to leave.
Grant its wish.
Stand up. 
Open the door.
Kiss it on the cheek.
Bid it adieu.
Watch it leave. 
Close the door.
Breath a sigh..

and return to life.


Short Leaving poem by Danielle Wise Baxter| Details | |

Heavenly Nevermore

The sun has learned
to nevermore interfere 

with the moon 
and its stars

To give it a whole world
because the sun

doesn't need to stand in the way,
when it has free reign 
of the entire universe.
