I never understood
Why did you stay
When words flow
Knives would’ve hurt
Much less.

Never understood
The way you
Wanted him to stay
Held on like
He showed affection.

Never thought
I’d understand
The way you want him
His presence seemed

Thought I’d leave
When I turn to be like you
Our worlds fit
Like a glove.

Turned out
I understand
It’s hope that
Never left.
