Fight or Flight
How do you deal with beseeching eyes
Not quite begging you to stay,
But silently asking you not to leave?
Do you just walk away?
How do you leave something you’ve grown to love?
Do you just fade into the background?
Or do you foster relationships
And play lost and found?
Many a fool has done it
Or are they actually smarter than me?
If I ask them how they did it,
Will they say it was easy?
Is it more painful to be left behind,
Or to be the one who walks away?
But how do you walk away
When every fiber of your being wants to stay?
