She will leave you because you were not present for the important things. When she asked you to help her, to feed her, and to confirm her feelings, you shrugged. You had a lot of discussions. You said a lot of words. Many fragmented sentences that seemed to shine so brightly, but you never followed through.
She’s going to leave you because she never really counted
Because if she counted, you would not have looked at her with disappointment. If she really counted, you would not be angry for a stupid little argument. If she really counted, you would not have missed this appointment. If she really counted, you would have listened. Really listened to what she wanted. What she needed. What she was telling you so clearly.
She will leave you because you were not the person she thought you were. She will leave you because you are no longer the person with whom she can be. She will leave you, because you can not imagine your future with her.
And she can not be with someone who can not imagine her future with her. Who does not see a picture of old wrinkled hands in a corner of his head. Who does not see this beautiful and tragic image.
She’s going to leave because you’re not doing anything about it.
She is fleeing a life you could have had with her. And she sprints away from you and you’re just standing there doing nothing. You are right there, your eyes fixed. You do not run after her. You do not call him. You do not want to bring it back.
She leaves because you do not have the strength to do the right thing. You do not have the love inside your heart to beg her to reconsider her decision. You do not have the courage and bravery to try to reason with it. To try to convince her to stay.
So she leaves. And she will not go back. Because she deserves someone who will make it work. Who will fight. Who will say, “Stop. Do not leave. Do not run away. Do not leave me. “
She deserves someone who will never run away. That will prevent him from turning this handle. That will prevent him from escaping with the wind.
