Will you let me cry-
for as long as tears I had to shed?

Would you hear my pain-
for as long as ache this heart did bear?

Will you just be there-
for as long as needed was your presence?
not a single moment more!

Will you hear me when I’m lonely-
even though it’s not your pain?

Would you hold me, when i need it-
even though we’re poles apart?

Will you not be, when you needn’t-
be anywhere around?

Could you just vanish into thin air-
so our eyes would never meet?

I would love that, being free-
from both of us, shall we?

you could try that, could you please-
nonexistent, could you be?

Let’s try it now, my dear-
let you go and simply leave!

For you presence never was-
significant or real

For the present never was-
felt when you were near

Let go, you selfish self
let go, let never be!

I’m fine when you are gone-
be gone and let me be.
