Should I Leave Before You

When I gave you my heart, my life, 
      I bet never
   In your darkest fears
         Or wildest worries did you ever
   See this coming, 
This that eats away my flesh
   And inhibits me from fashioning
      The smiles I used to fashion
Incessantly.
      And this that eats away my flesh
   Wastes you, too, away, 
         Your time, your health, 
   Your patience.
While this that eats away my flesh
   May hinder me from keeping
      The forever I promised, 
Though my breath will cease
   And the flesh dissolve, 
      My heart shall safely be tucked with yours
