im Sorry

May 25, 2017

I'm sorry you have to deal with my OCD
You say it's not an issue, you want to help,
Yet I feel my repetitious words drowning you.

I'm sorry for my lack of trust in you.
You've given me every reason to trust you,
Yet with every beat, my heart throbs;
"He'll hurt you like the others."

I'm sorry that my tears could join two rivers.
I rarely know why I cry; all I know is the tension
That is built inside of me every day,
The tension that begs to seep out.

But most of all, I'm sorry
For letting you love me.
