Don’t You Dare

Don’t you dare
die on me
like a branch
that just fell off.

No, don’t be
like a flower that withered
too early
or too late.

Don’t let me
walk in circles
about what it means.

I’m confused
and my heart is heavy.

If you’re gone
as I fear it,
the air is fresh
the world is silent
there is nothing to see
because all is different
when you’re not with me
and I shall terribly miss it;

A mind in chaos
full of questions
on why you have to leave.

Oh to catch you
when you didn’t fall
but simply disappeared
like a popped bubble.

The sting,
the pain,
the fear a nightmare brings!

Please don’t.
I’ll be like shattered glass
like the dreams I’ve had with you.
