Go Now, Love

I know you have to leave, so go now, love
I'll be waiting here for you, it's okay-
And missing you doesn't start instantly
Since your presence lingers, for a short time
Like the afterimage on your retina
When you've been looking at a light too long
And see it even after turning away
But after blinking a few times realize
You've been standing alone in the darkness;
Somehow the shadows crept in unnoticed-
They must have snuck in with the cruel silence
That mocks me every time I'm without you
So hurry back to me soon, my sweet love
Come back to me, please, come back to me
