Take Care Of It: Revised Poem
I tell you that I'll be okay,
but my once blue skies have turned to gray.
Can't you see past my fake smiles and humorless laughs?
We used to be one, but now we're just two halves.
You say you still love me, you say you still care,
but the way you left me isn't fair.
I hope you still love me, I hope you still care,
because I feel as though I've been left to despair.
My fragile heart is in your hands now,
I hope you'll find it in you to cherish it somehow.
So please take care of it, for I am afraid.
That it is very scarred and frayed.
Those cracks and bruises are just a start,
and if you don't take care of it, it might fall apart.
You say we can still be friends, and I try to understand.
But I feel so alone when you're not holding my hand.
I always wonder if it's true that you still care,
because this damaged heart is such a burden to bear.
Take care of itI say it's all fine and dandy, and that it's okay. But can't you see past the fake smiles and humorless laughs?
Inside I'm dying, inside I'm crying, Why?
You say you love me, you say you still care, but the damage is done, and where my heart once was,
Nothing is there.
I know you love me, I know you still care, but I feel as if I've been left in despair.
My fragile heart is in your hands now, I hope you'll be delicate, and cherish it somehow.
Please treat it with care, because I'm afraid I've run out of band aids to fix it if it breaks.
The cracks and bruises are just a start, for I fear if you don't care for it, it will fall apart.
You say we are still friends, and I say I understand.
But can't you see past that and see the pain in my eyes?
I'm saying all the right things, the things you want to hear.
To make it easier on you, but my burden is so hard to bear.
Because that's what love is, caring about a person so much you are willing to sacrifice your happiness for theirs.
I'm still h
