Please Don’t Leave Me

Max Lakutin

How do I explain the red in a rose?
How do I explain the blue in the sky?
How do I explain the mess my mind devises?
And how do I explain the hurricane that follows?
How do I make sure that you see what Iโ€™m seeing
To make you feel what Iโ€™m feeling?

How do I explain the dark of the night?
How do I explain the strength I need
To make it through any day?
How do I explain the terrifying nightmares
That leave me numb for countless hours?
How do I explain that I canโ€™t take it anymore?

How do I explain the scatterings of my life?
And how do I explain that I canโ€™t fix them?
Will it even make a difference if I donโ€™t?
Or even if I do, will they care?
As non-existent as it is for you,
It is as much haunting for me too.

Canโ€™t you see that weโ€™re all helpless?
Itโ€™s too late for you to catch my fall,
Too late for you to request for a return.
Iโ€™ve come a long way on this one way
And you not wanting me to go is pointless
The only choice that youโ€™re given
Is to accompany me or abandon me.
So, whatโ€™s it going to be? TC mark
