Please, Don't Love Me

Please, Don't Love Me

A Poem by Jessica

You-
You are perfection,
Honest and true
And curious.
I lie,
Pretend I still am
What I once was.

Beauty of flesh means nothing
But if it did
You would still hold more than I
In your cheeks,
Your hair,
Your smile;
It flows through your words,
Your actions,
Your essence.

I am not fit to look at you
With such admiration
Yet falling is made easier with you.
I hate that it is.
My blackened wings are clipped
And making me tumble,
Crash.

It is silly almost
That I should feel this way
Though my heartbeat is slowly becoming your name,
My smile your property,
My hope all yours
But no matter what I want
Choose not to love me
Because I will ruin you,
Destroy you,
Kill you.
Pluck feather after feather
Of your miraculous wings
Until you can no longer fly.

I want you to soar.

So please, I am begging you,
Please do not love me.

I find this a strong statement. It leaves me with alot of mixed emotions. In some ways I feel it is a indirect cry out for understanding and compassion, and yet in another manner, it comes across as a bit of an in your face statement. If the purpose of this piece is to make the reader think about it that way, I would say it is extremely successful in doing so.
