Leaving - Poem by Lora Cooley

If I'm leaving then I'm leaving, I'm leaving and I'm gone
You try to tell me to stop you hold me back with your hand
You tell me please please there is nothing really wrong

I tried to stay I tried to move forward, but that didn't last long
I remember days when we lay in the beach our toes in the sand
If I'm leaving then I'm leaving, I'm leaving and I'm gone

When I speak your name I shudder, there is nothing left, not even our song
It felt wrong not to feel I love you when I spoke it on demand
You tell me please please there is nothing really wrong

For this, this thing we had is gone
I stay like a statue perfectly still now stand
If I'm leaving then I'm leaving, I'm leaving and I'm gone

This is me remembering the last time we touched on
The lips breathing things no longer secrets, things you want me to understand
You tell me please please there is nothing really wrong

Lies, screams, and lack there of, the silence is gone
I should be gone too, but you hold me back with a hand
If I'm leaving then I'm leaving, I'm leaving and I'm gone
You tell me please please there is nothing really wrong
