Leave - Poem by Mallory Horne

Where did you go away to this time?
How is it I cry every time you say 'Be Mine? '
You act like I don't care when you disappear.
I don't care about your braces I find it rather attractive head gear.

You were the one who inspired me to be,
None other than who I am and well me.
Now you're gone never to return again.
What made me think this was safe to begin?

I haven't a clue as I sit here without you.
Who would've known you could make me so blue?
Alas I'm just talking to myself without you here.
I said hold on and you let go of everything dear.

You were my asperation, my inner drive.
Now without you I am barely still alive.
Taking each day as it comes one at a time.
You're making me so crazy I'm starting to rhyme.

While you were by my side there was no defeating me.
Now in each other's presence we cannot agree.
The love we once shared that covered us whole,
Is now sinking down and tearing at my soul.

How was it that I could let you go?
I miss you more than you'd ever know.
Now I'll never get a chance to tell you,
Anything really since we are through.

That's what you get for cheating,
Now my heart is barely beating.
The absince of you in my life,
Has put me in one hell of a strife.

Today I see you for the last time,
Took all your herbs even the thyme.
Not one artical of your belonging remains,
As I steadily push the needle into my veins.

There you are, once again home again.
This thing near my heart is filled with pain.
As the fanitices lie and tell me you're still here.
It wasn't your opinions I wouldn't hear.

It was other's of us that I couldn't take.
Trying to calm my hands as they continue to shake.
You're no longer here and my blood flows in utter pain.
Through all of this you still hold me with that damned chain.

Apparently I wasn't enough for you to stick around,
Thoughts of you enter my mind and I fall to the ground.
I'm sick of pretending it didn't hurt and that I'm alright,
Now I lay waiting patienly for day to turn into night.

The moon always somehow reminds me of your beauty.
I thought that protecting you was part of my duty.
The questions inside go again unanswered,
As I silently cry the tears I thought I'd never shed.
