Why Can’t You Just Leave?

Why Cant You Just Leave? short poem

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?
