IF YOU LEAVE ME

 

If you leave me

From far beyond the mountains

Clouds of loneliness

May jump upon me

As if destined by nature’s ways

 

If you leave me

Words may forget to awake

Songs may lose their rhythm

My dreams may scurry for meaning

As if destined by world’s ways

 

If you leave me

A search may surge in me

For some thing new but similar to you

To fill in the blanks

Your departure left in my soul

 

If you leave me

I may view the future

As a void eerier than death

Deeper than dark ocean’s bed

Bitter and sour like ennui

As if destined by the stars of my birth

 

If you leave me

I will have to live

With a hope in pain

That you will come back

To lick and heal my wounds

That your separation incurred in me.

"If you leave me
I will have to live
With a hope in pain
That you will come back."
