I want to be able to cry
without thinking that it hurts you.
I want to fall, fast and far,
without having to catch myself
for fear of causing you pain.

I don't want to be
the only thing holding you up.
I don't want to remain
the only reason you're still here.

I want to scream into the night,
and not worry about your ears.
I want to vent and bitch
without thinking about your feelings.

I don't want to be
the only thing holding you up.
I don't want to be
the only person left to save you.

let me go.
