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 I’m seeing
To make you feel what I’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 can’t take it anymore?

How do I explain the scatterings of my life?
And how do I explain that I can’t fix them?
Will it even make a difference if I don’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.

Can’t you see that we’re all helpless?
It’s too late for you to catch my fall,
Too late for you to request for a return.
I’ve come a long way on this one way
And you not wanting me to go is pointless
The only choice that you’re given
Is to accompany me or abandon me.
So, what’s it going to be? TC mark
