Gone Come Back

Dark cold night air fills my lungs
I press on down this road
I have no clue where it goes
My feet hit the pavement
Freshly wet from the storm
The air feels wondrous as
it brushes my hot face
And dries my wet tears away
How can this be me
I want to forget it all
I want to stay forever gone
And not come back
I feel lost as I grasp for something
Anything to keep me going
I just wish someone could hold my 
Hand through it all so I dont have
to be alone through the worst of it
After so much pain and hate
Is it worth the tears and blood
What about the others I've hurt 
With my own actions
I run faster and faster
But just then I look back
To see my redemption
They came to save me
From this pain eating at me
I am so far gone now
Is it possible I think
I am Gone and trying to come back
And there they are to save me from myself
I don't need to self medicate
Or slice through my pain and memories
But how can i burden them with my problems
They refuse to let me go
I may be gone but 
I look in all of your eyes and 
I see so many reasons why
I am trying to come back
