blindfold

all the blood that i’ve bled
with the skins that i’ve shed
and the tears that i’ve cried
for the words that you said

about the paths that we took
and the terrors we shook
all the choices we made,
and the ones we forsook

the hopes that i had
succumbed to the bad
and now in my head
i’m desperately sad

still, my love for you now
will never allow
for failure or turning
my back on our vow.

though my dark, haunted dreams
pick at my seams
your brave, gentle heart
soothes my extremes

and though i walk blind
with no chance to rewind
no cruel new rising
can threaten this bind.
