You Say

"come with me," you said
not a single thought dared enter my head,
no room for excuses
or even doubt
I packed my belongings
and we headed out
"I love you," you said to me
and it felt so right,
so good and pure,
like I deserved you,
I didn't even know you
"it'll be okay," you say
as every tear falls,
you hold me in your arms
and just let me be
broken and ashamed
not worthy of you
"we'll get through this, I love you, it'll be okay," you say
and for years we made it that way
a baby came
and I was scared you'd go away
it scared me more
when you stayed,
a couple years later
another kid
your love spread thin
not enough of you to let me in
you took my hand
kissed my lips,
leaned in and said,
"we'll get through this, it'll be okay, I still love you, come with me,"
feeling empty
still I took the leap
traveled a rocky road,
we fought our demons and love prevailed
a few more years
down a bumpy path
our love was bruised, jostled around
I lost myself along the way
and turned you into an enemy,
lost a friend,
I wanted to give up
you didn't want this to be the end,
loving me will be the ruin of you
"it'll be okay, I love you, we'll get through this," you say
I say nothing
just cry and pray.
