Not Ready Just Yet...

Once again,
I find my self standing here,
waiting for you to notice me,
standing at your doorstep,
note in hand.
Explaining that your better off without me.
Your life would be so much easier.
And that I am cruel to drag you with me along for the ride.
I don’t deserve you.
And you don’t deserve me.
Even though,
my life is nothing without you.
I am willing to give my life up
for you.
I’m not going anywhere for now.
And I wish you a long beautiful life, without me in it.
I’m so sorry.
Goodbye, Love.
But, that note still remains in my hand,
and me, on the doorstep.
Because I’m not ready just yet to give you away.
And I step out into the frigid cold.

Great imagery! You have a very strong command of language, only suggestion is try to add twists and oddity to it. Or keep it pure from the heart like you did, I only have suggestions. Great job!
