You said you hated me.
We could have been the most beautiful pair in the whole town.
You could have had the moon.
Just be cautious: porcelain shatters with ease.
And when you were happy you would be very happy.
I would wrangle in each and every thing that you desired.
Every thing is not every one.
And when you were sad I would press your eyes into my shirt.
Please stain my sleeves with your tears, warm my arm with your sobbing.
I think your tears are painfully beautiful.
And when you were angry, I would never leave.
I would listen, empathize, and always care. But never leave.
Unless you asked me to.
And when you were sick I would mend you to health.
I would travel to the ends of the globe to find a cure.
To keep you alive.
And when you were tired I could carry you.
It would be an honest trip from the sofa to the bedroom.
I'd lift you like air, so you would never wake up.
And when you were high I would never let you come down
until every thought had been traced ten times.
Every inch had been touched twice.
And when you were drunk I would hold your hair
as you empty into the porcelain.
I would marvel at how the moon was not marred.
And when you said you hated me
I would leave to make you happy.
I left to make you happy.
And if you died,
I'd die too.
And that's all I have to say about that.
