Coupled.

If the suffering is mine
I’ll bear it fine,
cause I can live
with what I have to give
and take on my own behalf.
I can suffer the wrath,
but can I ever
see you weather
my storms for me?
It just cannot be
that by being mine
you’d be entwined
with this pain and load.
We share this road,
but I wish today
that I could take it away
and bear the cup
all on my own.
