leave me
sparrow

last night I dreamed of you
 1
again- I had let my thoughts slip;
 2
in the morning
 3
why can't you just
 4
leave me,
 5
leave me,
 6
leave me
 7
be - still,
 8
it's been a while now
 9
still, your shadow lurks
 10
up behind me
 11
in my dreams
 12
I almost kissed you,
 13
tasted the forbidden fruit -again,
 14
almost held you
 15
why can't you just
 16
leave me
 17
why-
 18
do you follow me
 19
still, in my dreams
 20
when I just want you
 21
to leave me
 22
stop-
 23
I hate this -stop
 24
I never said I wanted
 25
these memories;
 26
stop-
 27
making me remember
 28
all I want
 29
when I try to unravel the strings
 30
of the spider's web
 31
stop-I never wanted you
 32
why can't you
 33
-stop
 34
following me
 35
in my dreams
 36
  I want you
 37
to leave me
 38
  the color of your eyes
 39
to leave me
 40
  the way your hands felt when we touched
 41
to leave me
 42
  the sweet smell of your skin
 43
to leave me - finally
 44
leave me
 45
now; just
 46
stop-
 47
you're just
 48
a friend
 49
don't give me those looks
 50
those words
 51
I want you
 52
to go - away
 53
now; finally
 54
leave me
 55
finally
 56
leave me
 57
finally,
 58
finally,
 59
finally
 60
leave me.
 61

nice poem.
 — unknown

  tease me ? **** number 61 i mean
 — unknown

hey guys... interesting comments...thanks
the fact that "leave me" is repeated so many times is meant to show how it's meaning can change...or  how another word like "love" or "tease" would actually fit better...and yet it reads "leave me"

You got yourself a serious soul tie.  Break that and they'll leave you.  
 — Scotty-Boy

hey scotty boy... here's a question: how can you break a soul-tie? and is not a characteristic of a "soul-tie" that that it is unbreakable?
i wonder...
 — sparrow

Soul ties are spiritual and very persistent.  They certainly can be broken.  How can you break a soul tie?  Through prayer... I am a Christian - I would loose it and bind it by taking authority over it then break it in Jesus' name.  Simple really!
