    The watery tears fall silently from eyes
    The smile fades as she cannot say goodbye
    To linger would mean to stay
    And she has to walk away

    She cannot listen to false words of reason
    She cannot hear the cries to reconsider
    She refuses to do this to them, to herself
    And so she drifts away

    Her heart hurts and her skin twitches
    Her head feels heavy and low
    Her throat is raw from fits of hysteria
    Her cheeks sting from the salty flows

    She’s afraid she will break, she cannot look back
    In the future this will come again
    And she’ll attempt it again, and fail yet again
    So she runs away hiding her shame

    She pushes the thoughts of the smiles and the bliss
    Of the days that must come to an end
    But she cannot depart, the one thing close to her heart
    That she’s turning her back on a friend

    Maybe some day she will look to the sun
    And know that she’s done what was best
    But at this moment in time with nowhere to run
    She’s having to take one last test

    A test of her faith and test of her strength
    A test that could break her each day
    But the real test it seems is to let go of her dreams
    And finally walking away

    Thank you both. It was just a little thing I was writing during a rough time. My chicken-shitted self couldn't actually go through with the action.

    Gives a new meaning to the phrase "my poems are just words, no action".
