I’m Leaving

My Broken Heart

I know I’m leaving,

but I don’t want to go.

I know I wronged you,

but I was trying to

get you to stay

when you’d rather let go.

You’re right,

I’m scared to lose you

because I want you.

You’re scared to

keep me for now

and lose me in

the future.

Why are we both

so scared

of losing something

we may be meant

to hold onto forever?

I’m leaving...

but I know

you’ll return to me.
