You take a deep breath and turn to leave. A tear forms and falls down my cheek. You see it and wipe it off with your cuff.
I choke back a sob and close my eyes, Trying to burn a picture of you in my head. You look at me with those big brown eyes all-full of shame. I try not to look into them, but they call me to you. I donít want you to go but you say you have to. I say you donít.
It seems impossible that a week ago we were totally happy. You were loving and affectionate as always. And I was my sweet shy self. Now everything is a mess and you are leaving.
You say itís for the best. I say itís for the worst. We are two halves of a whole us. Without you Iím a whole broken me. I just pray that you donít forget to remember me.
I kinda agree with you Zach, I think it would sound better with a slight pause after eyes, but I don't think a semicolon would work, there should just be a simple comma. That's just my opinion, though.
