When I Love You, That Means Stay
I love you. So stay.
Not because you’re sorry
But really for the fact that I am
There is no distance too wide or too close
To evacuate the feelings of downplay
When we forgo the dread of comprehension
That all the assignments completed
Lead to the platters of regret.
I need the assurance that you won’t stall me
You need to know that when you’re done
I will survive the build up of what we left behind
In the rubble of what we created and provided
For the sake of what never was
I hate what love did to us
You love what I hated about us
