Miscommunicated Goodbye

Miscommunication is a powerful weapon,
a misfire of tongues
causing so much damage
that cannot be undone.
People try to relate to one another
while trying to be discrete.
What is intended to build up
can feel like defeat.
Secrets are hidden.
Secrets are kept.
Secrets are revealed.
Tears are wept.
Apologies are given.
Apologies are accepted.
Sabotage and ruin
are intercepted.
Deep in the soul
where secrets live and die,
there is a disconnect…
a permanent goodbye.
