I would have caught but you fell away instead
I am unsure why, I thought
My words were complete and clear that I was on your side
I wanted to be a safe place for you to confide
For you to live life free.
Perhaps that scared you. Perhaps it was too much.
Perhaps you didn’t want to be safe.
I would have welcomed your rawness.
I would have endured your moods.
I wished to stand by your side
and for you,
would have happily indulged in a fight
I wished to let you know you are the place for me to reside, but
I also have my life and I know when I cease to be required.
I hope one day you allow yourself to be seen completely.
I am someone to hold onto
I will hold on forever
But you chose
to fall away
