What if I leave?
Would you chase me?
Would you miss me?
Or would you just turn around
shrink your shoulders
say oh well
and immediately turn to other people?
because sometimes we just need to feel
we are irreplaceable to someone
that we have our spot in the heart
of that person that they’ll never fill again.
Today I felt I was saying goodbye
Not physically, definitely, truly
But in a way only I knew
I felt your embrace so deeply
almost too deeply
merging and blending souls
If we didn’t separate quickly we would coalesce
The kind of embrace that makes us unconscious
with that ear buzz and disturbing heat for seconds
capable of being like that forever
But I felt that was probably the last one
So I pulled myself out of your arms
Remembering I should pull you out of my thoughts
of my daily habits and wishes
and let you go
will you chase me?
will you miss me?
I don’t know.
I only know I have to step back
Say no to the fantasy of you
And like a grown up I should be
return prudently to my track.
