My Broken Heart

You're the only reason

I haven't killed myself,

but I would never

admit that to you.


Because I know in so doing,

you would run so far away.


You couldn't handle

someone so broken.


Maybe no one could.

Maybe I'll be alone forever.


So when you leave,

for that reason or another,

it will leave me crushed.


More than I have ever been,

that I don't know 

if I will ever recover.
