I Give You All of Me

By: Hanna Haitham

give me bruises
give me scars
meaningless fights
at night in my car
give me fire
bring me to my knees
and i’ll give you all of me

when my voice grows hoarse as i scream
when i’m fighting for a distant dream
as we wonder what else could we be
i give you all of me

crash, fight
i’ll sleep alone in my bed
and i’ll hold on tight
to the words left unsaid
if we could turn around
and just let each other be
without tearing one another down
i’ll still give you all of me

if you could see it my way
you would understand
the words i’m trying to say
instead of forcing my hand
but instead we sit in silence
none of us moving to speak
and as we both fight this
i’ll still give you all of me

can you see the fight
as it begins to leave my soul
we’re still holding on tight
to something that’s faded long ago
but i won’t let go yet
i will let us be
and as our sun begins to set
i’ll still give you all of me
