Forget

Please never love me
For only then will you leave me
And I will need you all
over again.
When I miss you enough already.
I'll regret nothing
but my hopes
And I'll love nothing
but memories
of a life you couldn't give me,
The void of feeling you could never permit me
But I never forget
And leaving myself
to the space you provided
As I continued to grow
furthest away
From the closest you would ever allow me
out of love
out of your way
only to find
myself.
