Would It Be Okay?

Poem by: Emuhleenka

Summary

If you leave someone, would they be better off, or you? Leaving them was meant to make them happy, even though they wouldn't see that. Though having them be with others, people that weren't you, would be worth that price.

Why is it that we can piece ourselves together
Until someone asks the question:
Are you okay?
And that's when we fall apart?
The urge we have to want to leave our loved ones
To keep the wrong nature of us away from them,
To keep them from seeing your pain,
And you from seeing their pain.
We never notice the right actions we do,
Only the wrong.
And that's what we fear;
Bringing that wrong to others and affecting them.
I never wanted to bring you pain.
How I wished you could forget about my existence,
And yet you refuse to do so.
Silly friend, I thought you knew better.
In fact, you can do better.
A new start was always recommended;
So begin a new chapter in your life, 
One that doesn't have me in it.
Life would be more promising and you'll be happier.
Much happier, actually.
Don't mind me, I'll stay in my dark cloud
And admire the sun in your new world.
You'll be better, 
And I'll be happy knowing that you're better.
You may disagree, 
But that doesn't change the truth;
The one I believe is affecting you,
The one with me in your life.
You tell me to change,
And yes, I try to.
But a part of me doesn't want to adjust;
Only to keep on bringing that pain.
I don't want to disappoint you again,
And you expected so highly of me...
I'm sorry.
But I must go and so do you.
May we meet again, you say?
No, may you find someone else.
Please, I insist.
Enjoy your time though...
