your tears

i would tell you the truth
if i thought that you
could handle the weight
of everything
i need to say to you.

maybe i should
maybe you’d break
maybe you’d cry in my arms
for all the words i knew
you couldn’t take.

i’d use your tears
as currency.
and and buy my way
out of hell.
ill sell my fears
for secrets
and promise
not to tell.

I should keep you with lies.
because i know that you
deserve a lighter burden
because life’s been
unfair to you

but maybe i should
maybe you’d break
maybe you’d suffer in my arms
for every bit
of my mistake.

i’d use your tears
as currency.
and and buy my way
out of hell.
ill sell my fears
for secrets
and promise
not to tell.

your tears
