#PoetryLovers: Stay.

Please stay,

I mean every time you go you take away my new day,

Leave me locked up in memories,

Temporary moments that believe it or not meant the world to me,

Acknowledging your angle I accept the outcome,

Seen a lot of things come and go that made love unwelcome,

What can I say I feel the same way,

Been at rock bottom where the light is dim,

Looking up from within the dark depths I search for light as bright as your smile on a bad day,

When I’m in a bad way the simple words you say sooth the bruises of my pressures,

Allow me to do the same for you,

Be the name you call on, that shoulder to lean on,

But you led me on and now your gone,

They usually come and go and I’m willing to show them the way, but with you,

Please stay,

The gentle but still a let down was a burn,

A burn scolding my heart followed by heartache I can’t make sense of,

Can’t hold a grudge because the good deserve credit,

Yet credit is all I give and receive nothing,

Learning experience definitely so,

Learnt never to let go, never keep them emotions on show,

Stand firm and hold your own because love can’t be found but keeps getting lost,

As this draws to a close I want you to know even though your gone,

I didn’t want you to go but going seemed like the best way to go in the end.
