Hidden Thoughts

We say polite goodbyes,
The learned ways of pleasantries,
The pain of farewell comes: a dull surprise
Yet hidden by a mask of gallantries.
I gaze upon untouched beauty,
Knowing forever after I'll lay bereft.
Unbreakable silence as departure screams finality,
Eternal regret for confessions convention left.
