Don’t cling to me.
I can’t stand being smothered by your love.
I must stay free
To come and go – free to shift and move.

Don’t ask for more.
I do not have the wherewithal to give
Undying love.
Commitment makes me feel like a captive.

Don’t cling to me.
If you insist on holding me too tight,
I’ll have to leave.
In liberty is where I find delight.
