The Horrible Marriage
by Laphael Williams
Why won’t you leave?
Why are you here?
I don’t you need you.
I never wanted you.
You choose to stay, even when I ask you to go.
You put me down time after time again.
Why won’t you go?
Somedays I just sit down and watch in silence.
As you brew a storm going on and on.
I can’t call the cops or my friends, they will think I’m crazy.
Lady Gaga was right “This wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion”
Depression why won’t you leave.
