Settling down next to you
Our bodies mold together,
In a sweet embrace.
Safety within you is all I know.
All too soon, things change
I lose my mind, I panic, I fret.
You growl, you groan, but you never make a threat.
I had to leave, I had to go, no matter how many times I regretted it.
I said, "I love you" and meant it.
But sometimes, when you love someone,
You let them go.
