No matter the speed of the day,
I always try to get you to stay.
I will carry you and my belief,
as long as it will
no longer cause you grief.
I seek forgiveness and nurture,
with you I feel
I can take one step further.
When the world is crumbling
and I am on my knees,
tell me you will stand beside me;
Hold me up or tie me down,
kiss me until your lips are numb.
Love until your bones
and hug as if your arms are
cemented around me.
The more I am without,
the more I realize I should not give in,
or maybe I am mistaken?
My wounds will not heal,
so I am prepared to cut God a deal;
Take me into your arms
and I will sacrifice possessions,
as longs as he corrects my obsession.
The story can’t end,
more memories to create,
leaving a higher power to decide
our own fate.
