Perspective



I hope his mind has mercy on my heart

because one more crack

and it's falling apart

There are splinters, chips, and nicks galore

I'm sure of it

It can't take much more

From lie wounds and cheat holes

to abandonment scratches

It's only held together by compliment patches

Random kind words hold it loosely as one

but one more offense

and my poor heart is done

________________________________________________

I hope she's not too damaged

to accept real love

to know she's worth me going beyond and above

No lumping me in

With the dudes of her past

Giving a fair chance for us to last

Understanding she's been hurt

is of utmost importance

Hurting her again; I just can't afford it

Hoping she doesn't put up a wall

I'll approach her and see

just where the chips fall
