Why do they always leave…

Why do they always leave? Don’t they know? 

Don’t they know, the most damaged, the ones who have seen the darkness 

Those are the ones with the most love to give 

Those are the ones with the gentlest souls, kindest of hearts 

Those are the ones that will pick you up when they are breaking apart 

Those are the ones you keep 

So, why are they the ones that are left? 

Left to be broken, torn, alone 

Left to be consumed by the darkness 

Left to have another piece of their heart, soul, ripped away from them

Maybe I’ll never know 

Maybe one day, all the love that was given away, will find its way back, to fill all those empty spots

The ones the darkness finds, to nestle into 

Maybe, one day, they won’t leave

Maybe, just maybe…
