Abandon Me

Abandon Me by Valerie Parente

"Childhood" by Valerie Parente

I felt completely abandoned by someone that I made accommodation after accommodation for to make sure they were never uncomfortable or sad.
And that hurts.
Because when I was in my darkest hour you didn’t have the decency to say a word.
When I lost the light of my life you decided it would be a good use of your time to leave me too.
To be honest, I don’t want your apology any more. I just want you to leave me alone. Let me be. And please, go on and abandon me.
