“untitled song”

I cross my heart
and I cry one tear
to be in love
with someone
I care for so dear.
I never thought
I could betray
for my career,
but in a moment,
I seem to be
alone again.
For all my faults,
I cannot hold you
But for all my love,
I can hold you
the impossible.
I cross my heart
and I cry one tear
for the home I lost
when you got tired
from picking up
all my socks
and underwear.
I hope you know
none of this
was your fault.
I’d have left
me too
if I wasn’t
still with you,
whenever I
shut my eyes;
Never knowing
how to say goodbye.
