Couplets, Poem, Rhyming

Day 91: Stay

Do you hear the words I whisper,
As you turn your head to see her.

Your eyes linger lovingly at her beauty,
A gaze that undoes me with its crulety.

By my side is not where you want to be,
But destiny first brought you to me.

Clinging to belief of​ our true love story,
I willingly keep us in this purgatory.

Sighing as you finally turn away,
Praying that your heart will not stray.

I catch my breath and look at you,
Finally admitting what my heart always knew.

What am I really holding on for,
When you don’t see me anymore?
