I Have To

I will write it down,
I have to.
I will say it out loud,
I have to.
I will scream it to the wind,
I have to.
I will sink it down the river,
I have to.
I will cry out to the sky,
I have to.

Till my body becomes numb,
Till I know not the harm;
Till my heart goes insane,
Till I feel no more pain;
Till I give up on you,
Till I find someone new;
I will lose myself,
Trying to unlove you.
If only you knew I can't,
But I have to.
