Without You

Published by at 11:39 pm under Dark Love Poems

Please, don’t let me go.
Can’t you see it in my eyes?
I’m happy in your arms,
Content to remain forever by your side.
The last goodnight kiss;
The whispered “I love you”;
Then I drive off into darkness,
Feeling cold without you.
I’ll never show it or let on that I’m not fine,
But once I turn the corner the tears spring to my eyes.
I know I’m leaving you to reside in what I no longer call my home.
The thought leaves me depressed.
I feel utterly alone.
That’s when despair sets in,
Self-loathing close behind.
You’re not here to calm my fears or set everything alright.
So I lie in bed all day;
Mother says I’m useless.
That only makes it worse.
I hate myself so much it hurts!
I can’t tell anyone how I truly feel,
Lest they think I’m mental or overdramatic.
I can’t go on.
This has to end!
I want to slip into darkness,
Spend eternity there.
Then I think of you,
The only one I truly love.
I can’t leave you all alone.
So I dry my eyes and paint on a wooden smile.
Mother never once suspects,
She’ll never know.
And neither will you my sweet love.
I know you well enough,
My mental state would worry you sick.
When I’m back in your arms my suicidal thoughts subside.
All is right again.
