If You Must Go - Poem by Ayieneiya

If you must go, then just go.
Don't think about the thousand yesterdays
That you and I have shared.
They'd bear no weight.

Just fly away and flee.
Do not look back.
Because if you are expecting tears
To hold you back; you won't get them.

Take the first step and run away.
Run like you're running for your happiness.
Don't stop and check if some one's trying to catch up
Because there will be no footsteps following yours.

But should you decide to extend your arm
To close the space between us
I'd throw myself to you with no hesitation.

There would be no promises, no empty words
I will not even tell you that this time would be better
All I know is that now I'd have another chance to show you
How this love made me breathe, how it made me complete
And how it constantly reminds me that without you
I would cease to exist
