poetry

to mean something more… 

​i tried like hell 

for a silent acquiescence 

although i didn’t agree 

and i wasn’t exactly silent 

but i wasn’t trying 

to keep my integrity 

because lord knows 

i’ve never worried about 

acting like a fool 

but i was trying to keep you 

from losing anymore of yours 

selfishly, in a way 

because i didn’t want to 

remember you as vain 

i wanted the pain 

to mean something more
