Hold Out Much Longer

I told you I couldn’t
Hold out much longer
On my own,
And that I have to have help
Or I’ll crash and burn soon.

But I’m afraid that you
Didn’t really understand
That I was serious about that.

I’m afraid you didn’t think it through
And reflect on what it would mean
If I were to quit.

But since you’re nowhere
To be found at the moment,
Let me say for the sake of
Further discussion down the road
That the thought of you
Kicking yourself later
When it all falls apart
Comes as no encouragement
To me now.
