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.

When it hurts,

tell me to stay.


When leaving becomes easy

and it’s too soon be something you need,

at least make me feel wanted.


When it hurts,

will you stay?


When walking away becomes an option

and bedroom escapades no longer make me necessary,

can you long for my mind in ways that make love still feasible.


When it hurts,

and the pain speaks to you.


When it hurts,

and you run out of ways to fight for us.

If I become too much and you see our love as a burden,

while you guard your heart and protect your sanity

will you let me carry the weight?
