Denial

If I don’t see it,
it isn’t real.
If it’s not real,
I can pretend not to feel.
I’m not strong enough
to let my heart break.
I’m sorry but
I’m not sure how much I can take.
This can’t be happening;
I need you to stay.
Don’t leave me here,
please don’t fade away.
Bad things can’t happen.
This illness can’t be true.
If it’s not spoken,
maybe it’ll pass from you.
If I don’t see it,
it isn’t real.
It can’t be true,
I’ll make any deal.
So stay with me.
Don’t leave, I pray.
I’ll close my eyes
and the bad will go away.

Prompt: Don’t See
