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
