I just found out that a guy I really like will be moving to a different country (in a couple of days, probably).

Two Years Were Not Enough


I’ve known you for two years now,

and just yesterday I found out

that you’ll be leaving

and starting a new life.


Where? I don’t care.

When? I don’t know.

All I know is,

you’ll be leaving.


I wish you didn’t have to go

I wish I could’ve said more

You knew for a good while

about your damn departure

and you daren’t utter a word.

I’m just dishearteningly disappointed,

That would be hard to hear someone is leaving, especially so suddenly. Saying goodbye can be one of the most difficult things we do in our lives. I feel like you really captured that in your poem.
