my mistakes are not
petty mistakes

no no no

my mistakes are monumental
and glorious mistakes
that completely
rip the heart
out of the people
i love most

i’m undeserving
and i take for granted
most things i have
in this brief life,
her unconditional

and tho
i’m so far beneath
the kind of man she deserves
to be with
i just want her to know
that despite my
and despite
the hell
i sometimes
bring to
our lives,
I love her,
I love her
than the fire
that continues to
what’s left
of me.
