One More Box Of Kleenex - Poem by Larisa Marie Davis

i don't want to think about you
so don't drift enticingly into my thoughts...
i don't want to hear you
so don't call out to me in the darkness
i don't want to see you
so don't appear in my minds eye
cause the thoughts cause happiness
and your voice steady calms me
your image alone makes me smile
which seems like the perfect response
to such a perfect person
but i'm not strong enough
i don't have the willpower
to pretend that i don't
bre-

and i cant blame you for being you
but i just wanna choke back
this feeling. make it stop make it end
mend
forget
undo.
i'm down to my last cry.

the last line is from a song by Brian McKnight
