Marrying Kind

I once told you I was not the marrying kind
Yet you opened me up
Like a large vast empty hole
And filled me to the brim with your love
Making me fall 
Making me believe
Making me whole once again
I kept telling you 
Trying to make you understand
That if I truly let you in
You couldn’t 
Leave me
I see it happening now
Im dressed in all white
And there you are
At the end in a tux
I guess I am the marrying kind
But only to you
Just then
You rip the beautiful seams of our story
Taking the floor out from under my feet
Making me stand on uncertainty 
You say you aren’t sure anymore
But that’s okay
Because I love you
And I know that’s enough
I can show you that what we have
Is real
Im not leaving you
I am here for you
Just remember 
That I am not the only one in this relationship
Who will really be left standing alone
When this all comes to a bitter end
