Why Can’t You Just Leave?

Why Cant You Just Leave? short poem

Photo by pstmn

Why can’t you just leave?
Leave for me to breathe
Breathe for me to need
Because in you I find comfort
But we can never be,
it was not meant to be

She holds my breath with her fingertips
I cry to let the stampede out
But she closes my eyes with a kiss
And knocks me on the ground
But why can’t she leave?

I thought you said you couldn’t
You said you didn’t
But why did you lie to me?
Why can’t you just leave?
I’m stranded,holding our love in a pit
A pit with no life
But you choose to let go

I’m trapped and lost
I need you to need me
But you don’t
I decide to leave
Without a sound
But of that of my heart,
crawling to the ground
Why didn’t you just leave?

Maybe at another time this could have worked But for now we could never be… It’s like looking down the road and seeing a curve. You don’t know where it’ll take you or even if you’ll ever be back. But
