Please Leave (Don’t)

The tears in my eyes will tell you

That the realization has come so

That I am unhealthy for you

And so, I need to let you go.

I am sad and not glad

But I don’t want to turn you mad.

Don’t come to comfort me.

I am not playing victim card to make you feel guilty.

My fear has come true.

I am unhealthy for you—

My fear, my jealousy that I don’t want to show

Unlikely of me because I never felt these before.

Please go away because I can’t make you leave.

I can’t hurt you by any reason any more.

It pierces my heart and makes me cry

To even imagine you being in pain because of me.
