This was written for anyone who has experienced a painfully one-sided, unfailing love for someone else.
Won't you let someone in and love you?
I reluctantly still do.
Expecting as little as possible
Enjoying as much or less you give.
Maybe it is because I once saw you
Behind your guard.
I've hung on
To every empty word with promise
Forgiven every heartache.
Followed you like a wandering helpless child.
For goodness sake
You've been strong enough for
And against us all:
Holding back to the very end!
You need love like water
And yet you've never seemed to budge or let on.
I feel as if I'm consumed in your drought.
You beg for love, as I do
But refuse it.
I embrace you still,
With your fragile,limp reply
And when you fall
I will be mercifully there for what is left of you.
Laughing and crying
