Separation Panic in August

be gone, be gone
don't flaunt your best
before you hit the road
don't try to dazzle me
season my sorrow
I know you're on your way
no matter what I say
don't tease
be gone, be gone
pigment's no trade
for pitch-dark nights
partial days

Hi. I just stumbled across your site from 9 to 5 poet and am totally blown away by this piece. I particularly love the second verse: perfection.
