Don'T Wait For Me - Poem by TP Sage

Don't give your best or worst to me.
It's wasted.
I no longer wear the words you say.
I felt naked within them anyway.
I lost myself along the way
but now I'm finally found.
Don't wait for me.
I have to leave.

Don't plant your tears on me.
I've grown plenty of my own.
You took my heart and mind away from me.
Even my insanity didn't set me free.
It's not the only way to be.
At least that's what I've been told.
So please don't wait for me.
I'm leaving.

It's not love that kept me here
I had no clue, and still don't.
It felt like there was nothing I could do.
I thought that love had blocked my view.
I must have been as sick as you
to watch you melt my soul.
Don't wait for me.
I'm gone.

And please don't ask me why I stayed.
