Because

Because I love you too much.
Too much to stay around and watch
you hurt yourself that way.
Hiding in your secret spaces.
Seeking out the lonely places
where the others never see you cry.
Raging somewhere deep inside.
Hurting me with all your pride.
And so I have to stay away from you.
Even though it breaks my heart
to have to say goodbye.
I must survive.
And so I send this one last message
on a sigh...
