Have you ever been through a lot of goodbyes that you eventually become too good at it?
However poetically beautiful goodbyes may be, most of us here prefer the opposite. Nobody wants the dreaded separation from a fond moment or a person— for a while or for good.
I haven’t been through a lot of goodbyes (and I would like to keep it that way) but I think I’ve been through a number of unsaid ones. Those silent goodbyes that likens to letting go of a hand that you never held. Like the setting free of someone or something that wasn’t yours in the first place. You see, I learn my lessons slow and I’m only good at one sigh at a time.
Maybe this is why I’ve been replaying this certain song lately. Too Good at Goodbyes is a single by English singer-songwriter, Sam Smith, who has been away from the limelight for two years. The song just shoves depths of melancholy. It’s sad and hopeful intertwined.
Hope you enjoy it. 🙂
And every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true
I’m way too good at goodbyes
