Hold My BreathA Poem by Marlena
You said you would love me and you did
but I can't escape this bitter loneliness
and I can't help this strange urge I feel inside
you said it was all right, the pain comes with the night
and still I tried
You said you'd protect me and you did
but I keep making scars and marks I can't cover anymore
words pass through me and insults swim in my veins
I'm used to the pain, it's always the same
I'm wrong, I'm always wrong, I can't cover anymore
I'm all wrapped up in chains
Oh, I asked you to breathe life in me
and you did
- inhale, now, please.
I told you I'd love you and I am
I see it in your eyes and on your face
you've told me through silence
It'll be all right, the sun always wipes away the night
I told you I'd protect you and I tried
but I see these scars appearing and I know why,
I hear words tumble from you and see your pain
You aren't wrong, you aren't wrong, and I know why.
I'll break away those chains, it won't have to be the same.
You asked me for life and I've given it to you
I'll hold my breath now,
I'll hold my breath now.
All for you.
