Don't Leave Me

by Loveless Dreamer

Please don't leave me!
Every time we fight
& every time you walk out
on me
and leave me in this haunting
empty house
I am left alone with nothing
but my old friends
who are so charmingly, calling me
and they are glinting so beautifully
in the light
and I have to admit
I want to feel them
I need to feel them
slicing through my flesh

Every time you leave
I am one step closer
to another scar
to the end
of all these years
of being free from their charm

Please don't leave me alone
I can't handle us fighting
Your harsh words
being alone

I need you!!

Mommy, don't go.....

This gives more support to my theory about a void. Perhaps even feelings of rejection

I find it hard to love your pseudo friends as I believe you should

Your expression is beautiful Val.
I don't want you to feel like this though.
I want you to know I'll always be here for you no matter what ok Val?

Wow, that last line was very unexpected and it caught me offguard, very well done. the only improvements i would suggest, is toning it down, for a poem like this, less is more.good work. IBE

This was such a touching piece. Your words are so vivid and really make me feel what you're feeling. Like IBE said the last line sis very hard hitting and almost reminds me of a little kid crying after it's mom. Very sad but powerful piece. Keep it up. Nik
