Saved - Poem by Elandra Poindexter

don't leave
stop wait
no i cant
let you leave
save time to think about me
i know tomorrow
i cant wait to see
but just for tonight
don't leave
i'm not strong enough yet
hold me this time
take the weakness away
not tonight
i might not make it
if you depart from here
i will cry in the night
and when i awake
i will scream
only because you aren't
i'll think why did you stray
away from me
but you didn't
not tonight
you stayed
thank you
you held me
through this treacherous
state of my mind
you stayed
and saved me
you stayed

    I find in it the optimism of Robert Browning's 'Last Ride Together'.
