What to do what to do...

Promise the heavens you'll love her forever
But does forever end when she finds another?
watching his arm shield, protect and hook over
taking for granted that palm in his like you never
your neck wants to carry your head away but your feet
your feet cannot move because they know your
knees are weak. and you smile and nod because
it's impossible to speak, just a crackle and creek.

The love consumes all until it's all you are
Which means hiding a complete self when seeing her
hoping she can't tell it's putting you through hell
you're hiding that beautiful inner romantic
all these wonderful things and you can't tell her about it
because if you love someone, there's a need to see them happy
no matter how much it hurts you,
their pleasure makes the pain worth going through

Sometimes you wonder if you're just playing a martyr
other times you don't know if the pain can get pushed any further
and the rest of the time you pray to be stronger
so you can see her pretty face again.
Promise the heavens you'll love her forever
do you love her enough to never tell her?
