ADIEU
by Neo Blaqness

I tried
to help you
understand
how much
you mean
to me
but I
soon learned
the best
a man
can do
is let
you see
in silence now
I took
my bow
in quiet
took my leave
of all
your doubts
despite the shouts
my heart
did heave at me
knowingly
the risk
that somehow
you may
misperceive
my absence
for a lack
of care
but to live
co-dependently
is just not
me
I cannot
chase you
make you
feel
the way
I feel
or
how I see
at best
I can
show
my heart
to you
and hope
you someday
see
I know not
how long
I have
before
my heart
fails me
and tells
my mind
that you
are lost
despite
my disbelief
the place
your presence
claimed within
remains
I joyfully
visit
every now
and then
each time
I leave
in pain
your absence
is a wound
I can
neither patch
nor wish
to fill
it reminds
me of
the price
of love
be that
of good
or ill
to have
the choice
to love
or not
for you
I always
will
