Patience

Patience

by Ly Beaton

15-17

I’ll apologize for no reason
As if I’ve committed an act of treason
Maybe some sort of fraud
Something like I pissed off God
But I need you to be patient with me

I hope you know how deeply I care
And I don’t know what I’d do without you there
Your poems and drawings fill me with joy
You’ve brought so much love to this blue-haired boy
I know that you are patient with me

I know love is a fantasy pulled right from a book
But my stone cold heart you unexpectedly took
Now miss you with every second that passes
Your kisses, your smile, and those cute little glasses
I’m happy you’re patient with me

So we may have acted like we’re at war
But if at the end of the day I can knock on your door
I’ll call us winners in this pointless fight
Since I won’t let you drown or blowout your candlelight
Thank you for being patient with me
