I Am Afraid
I am afraid of your absence,
and more of your presence!
Not having you will wreck me,
and having you will break me!
When you’re not around no one I want,
and when you are, it’s “you” that I want!
Without you my colors are dusky,
and at your side I am gray!
Your farewell draws me to madness,
and your hello causes me stress!
Without you I am yearning, I profess,
and with you I am restless!
Without you I am wearily done,
and with you I am on the run!
Stay with me, in my awareness
Leave me at my presence
I've gotten used to your absence
