Please Don't Say

Chapter 1

........

by: Apathy_
Don't tell me you love me
Until you've seen me
At three in the morning
Crying
Screaming
Shouting
Shaking
Clutching a knife
And ready to go.
And you shouldn't say you love me
Until you've caught me
Absent-mindedly stroking
My battle scars with my finger
Not thinking
Not knowing
Not realising
Not breathing
And not wanting to.
And don't tell me that you love me
Until you've seen me cross the road
No looking
No listening
No being careful
Just complete carelessness
Stepping in front of the cars
And hearing the screeching breaks.

And please don't say you love me
Until you've seen me at my worst
Not just crying
Not just drained
But my very worst
Ready for it to end
Wanting it to end
Willing it to end.

Because I might not say it back.
