"there's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light, and i'm frightened by those that don't see it" ~the avett brothers, head full of doubt

I've always tried to imagine
Him leaving
Tried to make myself
Let him go
But I never can bring myself
To give him up
I know he doesn't belong
To me
But I care about him
As if he did
Just want him to be happy
And have a good life
Think about it so much
It makes me cry
When I imagine him
Going off to be a soldier
Giving himself over to be
Government property
I even dream about it
My subconscious thoughts
Show him being on the runway
Waiting to get on a military plane
The cheesy movie scene
He's decked out in his uniform
And I hug him one last time
Tight enough to make him stay
And I can't release my grip
Then I wake up
Knowing he'll soon be gone
