Apologies for the Jagged Edges

Two broken teenagers trying to fight for love as best they can...
Loving you was the hardest thing I have ever done,
It felt like ripping out my soul in an effort to become one.
Just a city girl with a shattered past,
And a small town boy, heading for self-destruction fast.
Two lives colliding into one,
Blazing so bright like the midday sun.

Giving what little we had left to one another,
Apologizing when the jagged pieces cut.
Hoping to outrun the legacies of our mothers.
Trying to make every moment last.

Like waves rolling in a storm,
My love for you is constantly reborn.
Broken and bleeding trying to survive,
You told me it was to me to decide.

Loving you is the hardest thing I have ever had to do,
But I am not complete without you.
Do you like the poem?
