selfish

it would seem

that you and I

can no longer be

if peace must stay

because we all

can not share;

we do not have an

unbreakable bond

and if I were truly

a friend to them;

I would let you go,

allow you to find another

while I watch from afar

then peace can ensue

yet, I am selfish—

I am selfish

I can not let you go

so I must simply hold on

and let all hell break loose
