This poem was chosen because it speaks volumes about the most important part of life, relationships. During our lives, we develop relationships and as we grow we sometimes outgrow the relationship. However, it is often hard to leave those relationships that we have outgrown because we feel that we will be leaving a part of ourselves behind. We then decide to stay especially if the relationship was a physical one. The poem, Why Cant I Leave You?, is a free verse poem that is rich in imagery. These poetic elements will be the focus of the analysis.
