Before you turn and start walking away,
.... That ' fake ring ' made of grass and the flower is still next to that photo on my side table, with you smiling at the setting sun...
Before you take that first step..
... The necklace is still intact, never leaves my neck really..
It's my lucky object...
Before that tear drops..
I already miss you, already wondering where my fairies are...
Before you hold on to the door knob..
... You've changed me and I don't think I can be me without you around... This is already painful that I thought it wouldn't be..
Before you get to the other side of the door..
... Am literally dying from inside, like the old times when you'd have me watch horror movies although you knew I wouldn't sleep ..
Before you turn and say goodbye...
..... Even this is hard for me to say... But I don't want you to...
Before you slam the door and leave...
..... I hope you know the things I said were real and true.... Even the times you woke up to my overfried ' fries '
Before you walk away...
..... I don't think I'll ever be the same again... I don't think I'll ever be fine again...
.. Before you start forgetting me...
... . I'll never forget you.

A lovely, heartfelt one.

Knowing you will not be the same without this love.

Wanting her to know you will not forget her...that you really do not want her to leave even though you had thought it would be easy.

Nice write.
