Have you ever met someone who makes you want to protect their happiness,

do you know

that’s who you are to me?

 

You are more than a right now love

and I wonder what would you do

if you had all the pieces,

even the broken ones?

 

Your existence is enough to make me smile

and all I ever want is to be beautiful in your eyes,

to be where your love lives

and house all your memories,

something like soulmates and meant to be.

I remember it all,

who we used to be before you broke my heart.

 

I reminisce of the me

who breathed the same air as those who believed in love.

 

I recall the words you used to make promises you couldn’t keep,

and times I questioned myself to sleep.

 

I cast my mind to the faith I held

before I learnt to blaspheme my desire to be with someone.

 

I muse on the vows I made to myself,

that I’d give my all and you’d be the last

 

but despite the hurt I long not to be alone,

so to keep my vow,

I emphasize how I call you the last to break my heart.

how did we get here,

how did we become people afraid to forgive?

 

how did we get here,

how did we become lovers who forgot pride was the sacrifice love required?
