I made dinner for you,
It was your favorite meal,
The crumbs were left, dishes broken-
And I did because I love you.
Although my name is associated with garbage,
My thoughts no longer perceivable,
And my heart has become overwhelmingly broken,
I still stay because I love you.
I wish he saw me,
I wish he would stop,
I wish he felt my appreciation-
But, I continued to take care of him because I loved him.
He told me his doubts about me,
Slandered my feelings with a cold shoulder,
And let me fall as deeply as possible, alone,
But I stayed, because I loved him.
Days become shorter,
Nights become longer,
And I don't know how much longer I can search for myself.
I look in the mirror,
And I do not recognize who I am.
My skin feels like a jacket,
And my mind feels overpainted.
I stay here,
In this dark hole,
Trapped in my own head,
Praying he would see me.
But tomorrow may be different,
Because tonight he told me he loved me.
