I know your heart has grown heavy,
it’ll take but a moment to fall.
You’re missing a sense of sanctity.
Just know, my dear, it evades us all.
I know your days have no dawn
and all your light is masquerading.
I know your nights are ever-long
and lunar tears are cascading.
The skies, they weep on you alone,
and the passersby, they stare.
But I promise you not one will slow
to ask you how you fare.
They’ll watch as the rain will pour
and they’ll say they didn’t see
all the tears that came before
the night you chose to leave.
You’d lived through too much pain
and you knew you couldn’t bear
to live to see another day,
but you saw me standing there.
I gave you the love they borrowed
and all the courage that they stole
and you let me keep your sorrows
in a bottle of my own.
I took it away, planning to
drown it in the endless sea
because, just as it was hurting you,
it had begun to grow on me.
But, instead, I chose to remove the top
and see the things you used to see.
Then, I felt my own heart drop
And, now, I wait for someone like me.
