Ode To Departure

Leave, just go please,
Put my stressed nerves at ease,
I don't ever expect you to be here for me,
Everyone leaves eventually, you see,
It will end less painfully
If I cease
to get on my knees
And beg for you to stay,
Because I know you'll go away,
Tomorrow if not today.
Besides, I don't have the right words to say
To convinse you that I'd do anything for you,
Go through anything with you,
Even renew myself for you because I want you.
But soon you will go,
And yes this I know.
It will hurt me inside though
I won't let it show.
I'll fake doing just fine as I go
With the flow.
Then, you'll be gone
Before I even know what's going on.
I've played this part dosens of times
But here I read between the lines,
I've been shown all the warning signs
So I'd better follow my Q's
Before I lose
Something as special to me as you.
When you walk out the door,
I'll pretend I don't know you any more,
Pretend It doesn't make my heart sore,
The fact that you're leaving
And act as if you were never here,
Make it appear
That I won't shed one tear,
Or ever wish that you'll be near,
You were never one who was dear
To my heart,
So then when you depart,
I can go back to the start
With someone new again.
Then they'll leave
And I'll be blue again
Then that's the end.
