You break, I build.
We take turns hurting one another,
giving less to our love and investing more in repairs
I lie, you cry.
You forgive without apologies,
reserving room in your heart for further disappointments
You don’t listen, I pull away.
You say you feel the distance
and I’m hoping the space will make me something you can miss
I pray for better days,
You hope for shorter nights,
so that there are less tears and thoughts on how things could be
You say you are still holding on,
I say we commit to the fact that things could be different
but neither of us is ready to change.
