If you just leave, I can again breathe,
Your actions have dismantled my sheath.
I am quite depleted and worn down,
My substance has wavered. Please no sound.
I need to be quiet; alone now,
So then, I can unfurrow my brow.
As my cisterns and cups fill back up,
After you continually did sup.
So, just go away and do go far,
No more to give. You lowered the bar.
As my lungs expand with that fresh air,
I can push ahead with little care.
