i’m sorry that i made you weak
it could have not been easy to amass the love
and yet
unable to set it free
fear makes us distant and unfamiliar
it guides us from the light and balance
i know
i used it as a tool, too
to hinder and breach trust we try to build
i couldn’t help you
i didn’t know how
that’s where my guilt lies the greatest
unable to fight for you to retreat
to woo you back and guide you from your fears
