I sit here with a mangled heart,
And I apologize for it.
I am torn and I want to mend you.
I am broken almost beyond repair,
yet I want to heal you,
I am bleeding to death
And I bandage you up.
I am devastated,
but I look for ways to keep you afloat.
I am beyond repair.
You know this is true.
Still you accept all of my gestures.
My last breath will be I love you
and you will merely say I know.

A love of another beyond words and actions, a true heart piece.
Though it would be lovely if the other one would also help you to mend,.

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
