My shallow eyes turn away

You aren't him you don't compare

And yet

This house that you built for me keeps me warm

Keeps me safe

Reminds me of bitter days

But in you

My eyes burn from the truth

I know its you

You adding the salt to my eyes

They stain to see

See you

And the light that you give


My roof has collapsed

But you are there picking up the pieces

Handing them to me

Promises of better days

But you are there

don't leave

I don't know how to repair a roof

But I will leave the door open for you
