Leaving Never - Poem by Kaitlin Schmidt

It always makes its way
Back into my mind
As if leaving is straying
And it must be mine

The thought eats me up
And makes me wonder
If I am not good enough
To have the love of another

I know it's not true
But it's hard to think differently
When I'm always looking for someone new
To fill the void inside of me

I can't place my finger
On what it could be
But it always seems to linger
I just want to be free

Free from the anger and worry
That I will be alone forever
And it's still lurking
In my mind leaving never
