I Don't Want to Stay

Take my hand,
Take me away,
Take me far from here,
I don't want to stay.

My memories here are painful,
They could kill.
All those days moving rapidly,
All those days so still.

The one thing more scary than death itself
Is waiting to die,
To think what if I go tomorrow?
What if today is the day I say good bye?

I don't want
To be here anymore,
I can't take one more bruise,
One more sore.

I want it to go away,
I want to forget.
I want to delete it,
I want to lose it.

So take my hand,
Take my away,
Take me far from here,
I don't want to stay.

    Check the third line in your fourth verse. I think you wanted to type "one" instead of "on". This is another decently descriptive poem with some good rhyming.
