I really shouldn't have
Called you my friend
For that just tied you down
A little closer
And you couldn't do anything about it
Even if you wanted to
I never should have
Looked at your face
And noticed the strength hiding behind
The mask of timid advice
Silent construction
Admirable bravery
That was oh so very hard to see.
I never should of looked you in the eyes
Because little did I know
You would stare right back
And look right through the facade
The mask
The front
And slowly pry it away
To see the broken person hiding beneath
In fear
Unlike anyone else has ever done before.
I shouldn't have let you hear my story
And help me
And try to fix her
That strange
Small
Frightened girl
Hiding behind that front
And you- standing in beautiful perfection the entire time
Whilst I dreamed of becoming someone whom you wanted.
I shouldn't have let you reach me
And smile at me
And talk to me;
Now a burden unto you
As I fear
That now
As you leave
That mask shall slowly grow again
And the little girl
Will be broken
Once more.
