Can't Leave Won't Leave

Can't Leave Won't Leave

A Poem by PatrickPink
"

I've realised recently that when I enjoy someone's company I really struggle to call it a night

"
Considering how many places
I have left
I really struggle leaving
In any meaningful way
Beyond running when the air
Gets too close and each corner becomes
Unbearably familiar 
I can untangle myself from
Cities, counties, countries
But company
Keeps me rooted in place
I just never want the lights to go down
To be the first one to say
No more. I need some
Space to be
Myself in
So I linger
Algae crammed in a fish tank
Corner
Until
The
Last
Possible
Moment
