If I strip myself from the bones, will you piece me back together?
I could lie and say I’m not needy, but I’ll need you more than anything.
I scuff my knees so often from tripping over my words, will you catch me every time?
If I lie and say I don’t love you will you still stay? Will I watch you walk away from me like I did all the rest? I’m begging you, tell me you know me best.
I’m a complicated beast but I can’t survive in a cage my love so please don’t try, just pour water on my fires and hold me closer to you. This is what I will need from you, will you love me still? I need to be the challenge you can’t run away from and I promise to never run away from you.
What do you Say?…
