Here to stay

He catches her dreams
Holds her screams
And dries her tears
He was never there before
But is now and isn’t leaving

She’s buried a million bodies
And carries a million souls
She is ashamed of her loss
And hides her scars
She is disgusted by her past
And has changed her name

He called her his
But she forgets how to belong
He wants to hold her
But she wants to leave no trail
She believes him
But he wants to mean more than that
He won’t let go
But she wants to be free to leave

He wishes on stars
And she wants a fresh start
He believes in miracles
And she wishes he could just shut up

But she wants him here
Otherwise he wouldn’t be
She likes it here
If not she’d leave his arms
And she tricks him into thinking
That it really is working
