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.
