I Won't Let Go

A poem to anyone who's seen me at the Worst of Times

I understand if you don't get

Why I must be alone

But in this moment of my weakness

I can't support us both

I can't give you my smile

And tell you I'm okay

I can't express these feelings

So I must lock them away

And when I hide within myself,

Let consciousness float free,

It's not that I don't think you're there

I just can't handle facing me

My face may pale

My vision haze

My limbs go limp

My eyes may glaze

But please don't worry

I'll be okay

I'll come back to

Earth someday

And when I do

I'll let you know

These words are true:

I won't let go
