You hold yourself together with
A strong resilience I admire.
You cry all your tears inside
Your own self
Keeping them in a bottle
Made of the hurt you've experienced.
Even bookends need something to lean on
Tonight, won't you stop trying to
Patch up the holes your tears
Leak out of your heart through?
Don't you know that once your heart empties
All your tears through those holes
I will use those same holes
To pour my love
Into your heart?
