Your Wishing Well of Hope

Its been three years since we've met 
two years since we started sharing a bed 
and one year since we haven't been
fighting on what could have been. 
wishing you'd give up her hand 
hoping you'd see your kids again. 
For three years I have listened 
you cry over your past 
hoping to guide you forward 
to a better path 
I've smiled to people 
I didn't want to serve 
just to make the rent 
I've taken orders from the rudest soul 
bit my tongue and begged 
not to spare the tip
at home is a hungry man 
I've loved you from the start you see 
I cannot escape what you've done to me 
you've made me smile, shared many laughs
heard me cry, carried me though 
the darkest times I've been with you…
but secretly there is another side 
the one I try, but lately can't hide…
the one who's secretly been waiting
hoping you would pull through 
three years later, and I'm still wishing on you
the lady I smiled at before 
is starting to make me angry
I can no longer work for her measly tip 
of pennies. 
Take me away like you said you would
help me live the life I thought we could 
there is only so much love can do 
when in many ways there isn't two…
and I'm still looking to count on you
but my pockets are low on pennines 
and there are no more left to throw 
down your wishing well of hope.
