Goodbye

I have a disease
and it’s killing me,
I don’t put up guards,
too open for my own good.
I say what I feel
and I feel too much,
this Earth school is too dense.
My heart’s too big,
it makes no sense.
It seems I love Earth
but it doesn’t love me.
I’m not fearless,
not invincible
but I am invisible.
So, goodbye, dear friends,
goodbye,
I’m going back to the sky.
