Poetry Corner: Leave Me In The Dark
I understand.
You exist in light.
When you are engulfed
You feel more alive, 
And you want me to feel that too.
I don’t.
But please, don’t wait for me.
Go. Enjoy the brightness
That burns my skin.
That leaves me weak.
Savor it for yourself.
I’ll be fine, watch you
from here.
Really. It’s OK.
Leave me in the dark.
It is where I am happy.
Where I feel alive.
We can still enjoy each other’s company.
You sit under the sun,
And I’ll lay in the shade.
