Almost - Poem by Jeremy Rodgers

She said, 'Won't you love me? '
I said, 'Give me a chance.'
She said, 'Love me even more.'
I said, 'Then take my hand.'
She took my hand and held it
and let it slip away.
She said, 'I don't think I'll survive tomorrow,
I need you today.'
I said, 'Forever can be so beautiful.'
And she looked away.
'Forever can feel so alone, ' I heard her softly say.
'I'll never leave you alone, ' I whispered in her ear.
'I'm already all alone, ' She brushed away a tear.
And before I had the chance to stop her,
she ran into the night.
I followed in the darkness
to the streetlights.
She stood on the railing
and stared into the waves.
I stepped out on the bridge
and she looked away,
'I knew I should never love, '
I heard her softly say.
'But that's all that keeps you alive, '
I softly touched her face.
She took my hand, 'You know you're right, '
and let it slip away.
