The Terrible Ritual

Goodbye is a terrible ritual
That happens just outside
Of time and space
In that place where
Molecules turn to meaning
And meaning turns to dust

But it’s got to be done
Sooner or later
Between arriving in confusion
And leaving in disgust

So you turn away
Or walk away
And I feel that lost
Hopeless feeling again

But it’s not you that I’m after
Just a place to hide and keep warm
And while away the hours
Waiting for the end of the show
