I tried to make you stay

I fought so hard
I really tried
To keep you here
By my side

But you escaped
You ran away
You couldn’t even
Bear to stay

I tried so hard
In helping you
You could have stayed
If you’d wanted to

But you still left
Leaving me behind
What made you leave?
What changed your mind?

Will you come back?
I don’t know.
But why even bother
If again you will just go?

Darling, I swear
You had a choice
If only you had listened
to my voice.

I will give you
One last try
If you promise
Not to make me cry.

This was inspired by SashaC’s poem ‘Cry for you’.
You should definitely read hers, it is much better than my own.

    Ha. Oh dear… I did a massive clean out of all my works, and ended up deleting Cry for You. Sorry. But yours probably works better than mine anyway…

  • gasp You didn’t?
    Yours is so much more betterer than mine :D
