I Was Okay

Info

When I came into your life
You were at your lowest
You were so broken and so lost
And I saved you, you said

When you came into my life
I was okay
Life was just okay
It was okay but now sometimes it's not

And sometimes I don't know what I want
Sometimes I don't know if it's regret
Or am I just sad?
But if I'm loved now,
How could I be sad?

How could there be tears in my eyes
Even when you're holding me
Why does it hurt
How can it even hurt
When you tell me you love me
And that you always will

This sadness I have
It never goes away
Even when love grows
Even then, it still hurts

I love you with all of my heart
And maybe,
I'll learn to love how it hurts

The lines like "And sometimes I don't know what I want" and "How can it even hurt / When you tell me you love me" express a sense of internal confusion and questioning, adding layers to the emotional landscape. The poem delves into the paradox of being loved and yet grappling with an underlying sadness that refuses to dissipate.

Your poem beautifully captures the complex interplay of love, sadness, and internal conflict. It explores the contrasting emotions experienced within a relationship, where love coexists with a persistent sadness that seems to linger despite the presence of affection. The juxtaposition of the speaker saving someone at their lowest and yet feeling an enduring sadness, even in moments of love, adds depth to the narrative.
