in progress

I have kissed unholy lips
And raised the stakes
And upped the pace
I have run toward the shore
And offered grace
Gave what it takes

I have walked inside your shoes
I took the bruise
To stand by you
I have waited for no return
The bridges fell
The bridges burned

I have cried a sea of tears
So you could sail
Away from here
I would bend where most would break
And taken all
A girl can take

And upon this lonely floor
I’ve drawn a line
Thrown wide the door
For all that love gave way to fear
And disappeared
But I’m still here
