Go Away

I wish you would go away

Everywhere I turn,

There you are again.

The past—

Creeping up on me.

Thinking you were gone—

I let out a breath,

And yet,

You have come back to haunt me.

I turn my back to you,

And you show up in front of me.

When I first met you,

I would try running into you;

Every time I saw you,

My heart would skip a beat.

Now I try to avoid and ignore you,

And sometimes I have no choice—

But to see your face again.

When will I escape?

Better yet—

When will you go away?
