»I could have stayed«

by Happy Towers Mhebheru Mhlongo, November 27, 2018

I could have stayed,
Without any stress and bad days,
The lecture every day,
The irritation and the ever speaking,
I could have stayed.

I could have stayed,
Alone and not begging any love,
Without any stress of love

To apologize every time you answer your calls.
I could have stayed alone,
Should have known the near by future.

I could have would have stayed.
