Devotion

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.
