Please Stay With Me - Poem by Nathaniel Aaron Bryant

Yesterday was the first day I've ever wanted to die
I'd rather be dead then watch you leave
There has never been a moment to pass me by
that I wasn't thinking of you please stay with me
Was the couch not soft enough? Was the radio too loud?
I would get on my knees and
beg you if I wasn't this proud
And is that what you want, for me to be humbled?
I said I love you, please stay, but that was only mumbled
I care too much to make a fool of myself
I have no where to put my pride I've already destroyed that shelf
So I tell you out loud just go and leave and
inside I say please stay with me
