You're Leaving

I loved you so much, and you still don't wanna be with me.

I heard what you said.

You mentioned to them that you were leaving.

You mentioned that you weren’t happy.

That you had too many issues here to deal with,

And you would be going somewhere better suited for you.

I heard you say that.


Was I supposed to hear that?

Did you want me to hear that?

Or did you prefer,

That I didn’t know?

Unaware of your departure,

Oblivious to your absence?


Despite everything we’ve been through,


You still,

Want to leave?

Everything I’ve done for you,

And all the things you’ve done for me.

All the experiences we shared.

All the laughs,




We felt together.

Creating a bond,

I thought was unbreakable.


You told me once,

That I was the one who made you whole.

Filled in for the gaps in your life,

And was the only one to truly,

Give you happiness.

I told you the same thing,

We were made for each other.

Ever since the first sight.


And, after all that,

You still wish to leave.

Was it me?

Did I do something wrong,

To shoo you away?

Have I somehow built a wall,

Separating us,

Without even knowing it?

What did I do?

Please, tell me.


I want to make things right.

My only mission in this world,

Is to make you happy.

I want you to feel the love,

You so often forget about.

And thus we can rejoice in it together.

Won’t you let me?


Still, you ready to depart.

No words,

Just silence.


As you move you last bag,

And exit my life.

You never said anything to me after that day.

Never responded to my attempts,

Never came back to visit,


As if all we had worked towards,

Had suddenly vanished.

Gone in your eyes.



What did I do?

What did you do?

What could possibly have forced you away like this?

Please, tell me!

I wish to be with you forever!

And yet, you don’t say,



Just like the void in my heart.


Whatever it is,

I wish you luck.

Luck for the cruel world out there,

I can no longer protect you from.


To be happy again.


I’ll still be here,

Wishing I could fix,

What went wrong.

You're so kind, Sharief! I really do appreciate your words! Is it a good thing that I do pain and dispair so well? XD. Not sure what that says about me, but I'll take it! Thanks!
