Don’t: A Poem

Hi there! Please enjoy this poem that I wrote this evening.


Go; don’t

Leave; don’t

Let this be goodbye. Don’t

Let my lives lie, wasted,

Spent, loving unrequitedly

With all thatI have left; don’t

Tear my heart apart – I don’t think

That it will ever start again once

You’re gone; don’t

Tell me you don’t love me anymore –

What is it for, just

To emphasise the pain your leaving

Left behind, the emptiness inside

Signalling a lack created by

Abstinence from you, an

Absence penetrating through

The center of myself. Don’t

Say you won’t come back again,

And we won’t be again

What we were before.

Please don’t
