Why is leaving so hard?

Poetry By: Aleauea

A poem that took me five seconds to write.

I look upon the cracked glass.

Glancing into someones past.

Nothing but darkness.

Why. Is. Leaving. So. Hard.

Every time I look behind,

a face is left, but it's not mine.

I promise you, if I must.

Glass. Shatters. I. Fall.

Down the flight of white wood stairs,

I force myself to beware.

Of anything that may prove dangerous.

Light. Goes. Out. So. Must. I.
