You'Re Right I Don'T Deserve This - Poem by Emily Cooper

Walk away
cross my fingers
Leave me be
clench my fists
Save yourself. I mean nothing
Close my eyes
Don't stay. Go now.
Lone tear escapes, slides away from its deliverer
No. Go. Please. This is for the best
What now?
Why didn't you listen?
Falling into your arms again.
