Just Leave

Just Leave

I am exhausted
Weary of you now
I need to breathe
Somewhere else
Where you are not
spewing your toxicity
 
My head needs calm
and my heart, peace
There is neither
Where you are
I need to find
that safe place
 
To switch off from you
This time forever
So I do not have to
Listen to your 
false accusations
To justify your wrongs
 
Leave, go, get out
were your commands
I heard, I did, I went
Yet you are still unhappy
Your words still come
Hurtful, cruel, indelible

    Beautiful and sad. I read longing between the lines but a tiredness weighs down the words and a sense of ‘I have done all I can I just can no longer do it.’ Loved it. 🙂
