Day 130 – Jeez, To Try

Jeez, to try when we know beneath our loves
is sleeping an intense desire
to crush.

Jeez, to try when we know that I could love you
’til I gave you up and then
I’d take you down.

Jeez, to try when we know we’re all such liars,
that our fondness only ever goes
so far.

Jeez, to try when our brokenness is written out
like a book, displayed and obvious
to all.

Jeez, to try when we know we don’t deserve it,
Jeez, to try when we know we’re all destroyers,
Jeez, to try when we know we can’t sustain it,
Jeez, to try when we know better,

Jeez, to try.
