Others' Sighs


August 21, 2009

I will love him more than I should,

Give him more benefit of the doubt

than he deserves.

I will accept half truths

As if they were whole,

Believing him, instead of my gut.

I will overlook discrepancies in his explanations.

I will cautiously walk on the eggshells

He keeps around himself.

I will forget who I am,

But remember his mother's birthday,

Sign his name on a card, and mail it to her.

I will live a lie without even knowing it,

And I'll wonder why I'm not happy

And why nobody has ever thanked me.
