A Coward I Am Not

I know I can’t
make
you stay
but where
is your
heart

You left me
when I needed
you most
why couldn’t you
have just stayed
just to help
if even for
just
one night

I know I could have
tried to fight
to make you
stay

I shouldn't have
to fight
for you to be
at my side
for it makes
me realize
you are not
who I
thought you
were

I no longer
want you
at my side
is it that hard
for you
to understand

I was not
complete

I am now

I am independent
on my own

I am no longer afraid
to walk
this world
alone

I am no longer afraid
to keep living

I am always
awake or afraid
asleep or be dead

I asked you
before
where is you
heart
for mine was
with you
now it is not

I should not have
to fight
to get you
to love me
so now
it is not
you
I want now
at my side

I no longer want
anyone
at my side

I am no longer afraid
to walk this world
alone

I am no longer afraid
to keep living

I must choose
to be
awake or afraid
asleep or be dead
choices such

No longer inclined
to such am I
they are
mine
