 Before We Die Awake

Shattered in dreams you held unto
Pieces that seemed would see you through
Have fallen short but not because
One did not try to help the cause

You ran with hope tucked in your arms
You chased the hurt that caused love harm
Breathing you saved to help revive
The soul of one who loved with lies

Keeping watch as if you were
A sentinel with post for her
To serve an undeserved request
Recieve back nothing more than less

You tried to show what still was left
To them you loved with tears you wept
A sea of salt that seeped in wounds
Like grains of sand they you entombed

Yet still you lived and surfaced to
Remind them of the love they knew
With eyes they'd see how much you tried
To please them but now dead love lies

There is remorse, but no recourse
But to begin your lives divorced
You see when empty is their cup
It's time to leave and not put up

Before we die awake please try
To kiss goodbye my heart that tried
