Disappointment

I cannot disappoint you if I go
If all I leave are dying fields
And flowers ever snow concealed
Then pain, because of me, you’ll never know

I cannot hurt your feelings if I leave
If all that’s left are empty frames
Where pictures were, but none remain
Then tears behind your eyes I’ll never weave

I cannot make you cry if I depart
If all the words just disappear
So it’s like I was never here
Then numb to me would be your beating heart

I cannot hold you down if I move on
If I submit and walk away
And just agree there’s naught to say
Except, “I was a fool to stay.”
I cannot disappoint you if I’m gone.
