A Two-Fingered Goodbye

Fighting back all of her tears
she rushes out into the rain.
Stumbles down the last step
picks herself up once again.
“Don’t Go!” she cries insanely
as the car slips up the road.
Slender hopes vanish in seconds
as her heart regains its load.
Choking upon the heartache
she collapses onto her knees.
She looks up to the heavens
repeating over and over “Please!”
But she is only answered by
more falling rain from the sky.
So to the now distant ex-lover
she waves a two-fingered goodbye.
