I'M Going Back - Poem by maya crisol
If you think your life is ending...
Why not take a look at mine...
it's long been ending
i've been cutting
shrieking and dying
still i find time to love you
to encourage you when you're down
to make you feel wanted and needed
just so you won't feel so low
I thought i was helping you...
but now...you're pushing me away
all you wish for is for me to go
didn't want to but what else can i do?
i'm just gonna have to go back
to the me i forgot...afraid and sad
all the darkness i've set aside
the room i chose to leave and lock
when i thought i needed some light
just enough to shed for me and you
but now they're all i have again
without you to care for and love so true
I'm going back...nowhere else to go...
nothing left to show
I'm going back
where the lights are low.
