He Says, She Says

He Says, She Says

Swollen eyes
and mascara streaks
I’m all cried out 
Feeling I haven’t 
slept in weeks
Fighting it
but justifying it
Trying to make sense
Why, oh why can’t 
I just quit?
Incompetent in love
Not accepting reality
Questioning my judgement
Imprudent actions
Tripping staggeringly
Stubborn and hard-headed
Was that me or you?
It only takes one
to cave and then
we can make it through
