Eternities

It was eternities of quiet
My tongue held behind bared teeth
Screaming for mercy in my head
But it was never my place to speak

Anger always came in waves
But the tide was never out
I hoped it was all for the best
That it wouldn’t break us down

I couldn’t say she wasn’t good for you
I was afraid of how much I cared
I was so lost, terrified to move
And I caught myself lost in prayer
