“Ten Thousand Prayers.”

I have loved you so, so much
You have ripped my heart to shreds.

I have been the only one listening
You have belittled my open hands.

I have given all that I am to you
You have tarnished my core complete.

I have held your hand through all the darkness
You have spit in my face with contempt.

I have prayed for you ten thousand times
You have lied to my face like you lie to your heart.

I have worshipped the ground you walk on
You have rejected me more times than I can count.

I have put your needs ahead of my own
You have broken my fragile heart on repeat.

I have patiently accepted all your steps forward and back
And you lie down silent in your bed of lies.
