Don’t love me today, for I am not who you think.                                                Don’t love me today, for you aren’t either.
Don’t wait for me under trees that have guarded you from hurricanes.                Don’t cry for me as you fail to find yourself in your own skin.                             Don’t yearn for me when the rain washes off your invisible scars.                       Don’t want me when spring leaves but winter stays back;                                  Don’t reach out for me when your soul bleeds unspoken words.                           Don’t crumble around me as you try to touch what was once yours,

Crumble around me today, as I break you into a thousand fragments.
Reach out for me as I reach away from the stories that made us.
Want me today as I leave you lifeless like Autumn does.
Yearn for me today as I pour down like your tears,                                               Cry for me today as I steal your soul away from you.                                           Wait for me today as I let you go forever.

Love me today dear, for you aren’t who you think.                                           Love me today, for I am not either.
