Petals of courage
Let me go, before I die completely.
Let me go when I say I want to. For,
Many months it has been a struggle
To keep our sanity. For many instances
When you were done saying rude things
To me, I sat in my dark room thinking of
Ending every possible thing that is alive
Within me. The outside world always blames
Me for tolerating you but no one comes
And shows me compassion for being
So brave. Yes I am brave because the way
I love you, no one can. You can't even fathom
In your afterlife how much damage you have Caused me.
So, when I say goodbye, let me
Leave silently. I know you would not
Comprehend what is love 'cause you're always
Preoccupied about your problems & principles.
But dear, love is what you get from me on a
Daily basis. The one you didn't ask for
Yet you keep enjoying & receiving the warmth
Because it is abundant in nature. You can't value
What reaches out to you randomly. Even if you
Know, you would never take an initiative to
Change an inch of yourself because you feel
It's useless. Yet, I love you. I don't claim it.
I simply do. But please let me go now. It is
Getting darker both inside & out. I do not
Have much time before you and the darkness
Consume my conscience totally! When I count....
1,2,3,4.... You slowly let my hand go off.
If you can't, watch me slowly move my hands
Away. Do not stop me. I'll go. I'll go forever.
You sit back & enjoy all the warmth I left behind.
