Too Many Times

Many a night spent by your side

After you wrung your love out in another’s hands.

 

Many a night, the heat was there

But the ground would still shift like sand.

 

Too many times

You rolled me between your fingers

And watched me melt like rain.

 

Too many times

You swallowed my centre;

Left a hollow more wretched than pain.

 

Didn’t you hear me

Knocking on your rib cage, desperate to find you within?

 

Didn’t you see me

Growing up the walls, trailing vines to catch you in?

 

Too many times

You held me at arm’s length

But still you kept me near.

 

Too many times

We try to choose love

But instead turn back to fear.
