A Poem by Leah Willough
"

Leave them if they are hurting you.

"

I must confess

My dear, I told a lie

I promised all was well

Back when we weren't fine


You should have called or something

But, you didn’t did you?

Just showed up to my house

And asked if I’d forgive you


I never could be honest

With the girl you used to be

You tell me that’s the reason

That you chose to leave


I won’t tell you I’m sorry

I don’t quite mean it yet

But, let’s go out tonight

Let’s try to forget


You call me by a nickname

I pretend it’s fine

I say nothing’s changed

Though it’s just another lie


You laugh more than you used to

I wonder if it’s real

I wonder if your heart

Could ever learn to feel


It’s dinner with a stranger

It’s melting in our hands

It’s 2:00 a.m.

And I don’t know who I am


Now you’re standing in my kitchen

Eyes glowing in the dark

You treat me like I’m fragile

Like I let you break my heart


You ask if we can talk

You wrap your arms around me

I say that we can talk

But rekindled love is fleeting


Now it’s getting late,

And you should get going.

You say that you still love me,

But, loving isn’t knowing.


I suppose it’s my last chance

Since you’ve driven all this way

But you’ve always loved to drive

And you’ll never like to stay


I promised I’d move on

About two weeks ago

But you keep coming back

You just won’t let me go


You’ve got your hands around my neck

Like a snake around a heart

I loved the girl you were

But now she’s just too far


It’s the last time we’ll speak

It’s written in the stars

It’s 4:00 a.m.

And I don’t know who you are


I can’t say I forgive you

I don’t believe we’ve met

You’re not the girl I fell for

I’m not the girl you left


It’s the sunlight through the window

It’s the sparkling freezing snow

It’s 8:00 a.m.

And I’m waking up alone

On a side note: Personally going through an issue similar to this write. Must be in the air.

Devastatingly Predictable, Passionately enviable

Excellent Read
