Go Away

Lorna Dwyer October 2005


Go Away!

Leave me alone!

I gave you

13 years of my life.

I went to school

I've graduated.

Held it together

Now you want more!?

No way

Get out

Get lost

Go away.

I can't hold it together

Not even if I wanted to

I need to be broken down

Then remade better.

No more demands

At least not yet

I need to heal

To be made again.

I'm breaking down

From inside

There's a hollow place

Breaking inside.

You don't understand

You can't see.

But you will

One day.

So…

Get out

Get lost

Just go away.
