Leave Me

I melt beneath your sweet, sweet words;

to me, their meaning is the world—

although, I know that I am not

the one to occupy your thought.


Is it a game for you to play—

a game of reckless heart decay?

One day you joke and act so soft;

the next three days, I see you’re not.


I hide from you who has the string

gently, slowly choking me.

I cannot breathe! Please let me be!

I cannot be your toy for free!


I pay the price of your needless ways

and find myself locked in this cage.

How do I deserve this fate?

What happened to our give and take?
