“Prayers for Unknown Lovers”

When they break me,
I have to clean
Up the pieces.
When I break them,
I have to do it all
Over again.
It’s a vicious and tedious cycle,
One I always vow never to let
Happen again, no matter how
Unrealistic (anduntrue) it (allofitallofit)
Sounds (ineedtosilenceneedandwant).
But I’ve grown thorns since my
Confession of not loving someone who
Thought I did.
Make my
Next say ten Hail Marys
Before they call me sweet.
Another before they say
I Love You.
Because I don’t know if I’ll mean it
When I say it back.
