Run From Me - Poem by nameless sorrow
It cannot be so hard for you to leave
to tell me there's nothing and go
to silently slip
through my fingers, so widely shown.
Why cannot you be evil, cruel or mean?
to make me feel better about my loveless heart.
why must you be nice and sweet?
to what do i owe such a fate?
can you not touch me
as though i could disapear?
could you not kiss me
as if i were a flower?
i am a mean and ill-hearted woman,
why must you, with your dark faithful eyes
not see me evil?
why must you be so much a darling
to which i do not deserve?
why don't you just leave me?
it cannot be that hard.
I hold no charm,
no gem of desire.
i am a tyran if anything.
leave me be, leave me alone.
i don't want to hurt you
i don't want to let you go.
because im an evil woman.
so quickly, run now.
run while you can
before i try to catch you again
and ensnare you with my need.
