Poem: Anyone But Me

Some days I want to be
Anybody other than me
I want to pull on a mask
With a big grinning smile
Hiding away from a world
That I can barely stand
These days that come
And go and come and go
If it wasn’t for falling leaves 
I’d still be living in dreams
Of spring days and spring breaks
Of that girl with tan legs
Who made promises
For living in other days
Now she’s gone and I’m not
And it sometimes hurts
But I suppose I’m doing okay
Day after day passing me by
But I’m passing them by
Thinking of those big plans
That maybe we will follow
So I keep moving along
Night into day waking dreams
Where I’d rather stay
Maybe someday I’ll find courage
To say those words I couldn’t back then
When I allowed you to just walk away
When all I wanted was for you to stay
Please stay
