"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."

Come as you are
if I can stay as I am.
It doesn't matter
if you're ugly when you cry.
We can discuss the horrors of the world
over steaming cups of coffee
and clasp hands beneath the table.

Spill your soul out onto my bedroom floor,
but pick it up before you leave.
And don't forget to take
your yellowing old photographs
and your favorite records,
because I'd still want you to have them
if you never came back.
And quite frankly,
most don't.

Completely love the title. I feel the emotion if your poem. For whatever reason "My Immortal" came into my mind while reading this poem. The sincerity in your words makes me see and feel what these two are going through. And I'm rooting for them to work it out. And high fives on the coffee part. I love coffee. Congrats on another Editors' Choice.
