Don't let me hold you back
by Amy Niggel
If she is what you want,
don't let me be an excuse,
I know all too well what it is like to wish for that all too rare second chance,
if you have it and that is what you want,
then take it.
Don't let me be the one to stand in your way,
You do not owe me anything
you made no promises so you didn't break any.
Don't worry about me,
I am strong,
I haven't been broken yet and you won't be the one to do it.
She had you once,
maybe she has had you ever since too,
how was I to know?
Follow your heart,
if you want to go to her
then go now,
don't wait for the chance to be gone,
I do not want to be the cause of your regrets,
so pease don't let me hold you back.
Author's Note: Knowing that there is another that he would rather be with is always harder when he tries to smile at you and you know he doesn't see you there in front of him.
