Poetry Month: Writer’s Digest PAD challenge, day four topic: a departure poem

Leavings

The time had come to leave.

We slowed our steps nearing

the elevator door.

Words hanging about us,

Stories buried beneath –

Goodbye.

We fixed our eyes on the growing,

Glowing numbers,

Our breath caught in between.

The bell sounds

Tolling our exit —

The whole of our hearts left behind.
