Don't Let Me Go

By Alexandria_Lee

Poetry / Drama

Don't Let Me Go




Don't let me go.

You see my wrists you don't know my pain.

You see my heart breaking, you look away.

To obsessed with your own fame.

Friends gone, livin' their own lives

Forgetting about me and my pain.

I have this feeling in my gut now,

Waiting for an answer that I know I'll won't get.

I'm trying to surrender,

But please don't let me go.

I'm trying to surrender,

But please don't let me go.

I turn my back on them and they do the same.

I cry, because there's a feeling I can't tame.

Cut up, I can't feel my hands.

I fall hard on the ground I once stood, I land.

I won't black out.

It's too easy to give up and go out.

I'm trying to surrender

But please don't let me go.

My love was pure,

But you corrupted it.

You took it away, leaving me with a broken heart.

The virus infecting my love,

Killing it like a gun to a dove.

We're now worlds apart, no turning back now.

No Angel to hold me together intact.

I'm trying to surrender,

So I've decided.

So just let me go.

Just let me go.

My blood spilling on the floor, the razor tainted.

I cry happy tears and my decision is made.

Slow and torturous, but ever gratifying.

As I clutch the picture of the one I hope to meet.

I close my eyes.

Darkness surrounding me, blinding.

A white light comes toward me,

And I see the love I lost, my Angel.

She holds out her hand and as I take it,

It slips from me, disappearing like cigarette smoke.

I wake to a new light, sterile and clean,

With her no longer there.

My friends stand above me,

They care, and I see it now in their eyes.

The love was never gone, but it was me.

Sad eyes watched me.

"Collins, why?" they asked.

I have this feeling in my gut now.

Getting the answer I've been waiting to hear,

But not the one I wanted to hear.

"It's not your time. Another time, Another place.

Don't throw away your life,

It'll be yours you'll miss."

She whispered into my ear.

I look and she's not there.

I heard her, my guardian Angel.

Another time, another place she said.

Well I guess we'll meet again.

I was trying to surrender,

But she didn't let me go.

I had to let her go.

I was trying to surrender,

But she didn't let me go.

I let her go, let go trying to be with her.

Another time, another place,

Taking her words to heart.

I'll see her again, positive as the AIDS running through my veins,

But just not now.

I tried to surrender,

But they [friends] didn't let me.

I tried to surrender,

But she didn't let me.

So I cry happy tears because my decision is made,

I won't surrender.

I'll fight, so help me.

I won't surrender again.

I'll fight, so help me through it.

I won't surrender.

So help me, don't let me go.

Don't Let Me Go.

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.
