Stay! I haven’t said this to a lot of people
But whenever I said it, I ended up hurt
And all that stayed was the hurt
Until my eyes turned red
And my heart turned blue.
Stay! I now say these to my tears
Even they don’t listen
My only refugee is these dark rooms
They abandon me too when they find me toxic, when they want light.
Stay! I love you
Stay! I don’t
Stay! Don’t leave me
This is pretty sad, now close your eyes or leave.
I’m done asking for people to stay
Now don’t send me messages
Asking me to be positive,
Or saying that I’m selling agony,
I am not a merchant,
Well if I was I would have sold my dreams
Not my pain.
Now please don’t come asking me for help
Telling me that you love someone
I know that ain’t me
I’m never enough, I’ve heard this a lot.
I know I know, just close your mouth
I may not be beautiful, but I haven’t sold my self respect yet.
Like I said, I’m done asking people to stay,
Those who want to stay, will stay
Even if you ask or not
Those who want to love, will love
Even if you ask or not.
And the only person you want
To stay for you is you,
So you stay put with yourself.
And remember you’re beautiful
Just tell him to get lost.
