You were to be my well But there was little to drink How am I to slake my thirst When you taunt me like an oasis

You were to be my armor Yet I still was hurt by our own How am I to survive When your shield is translucent

You were to be my walls But you were made of straw How am I to reside When you shelter is temporary

You were to be my farmer But you eclipsed my sun How am I to thrive in obscurity When your fertilizer burns my soul

You were to be my concrete But you were made of mud How am I to stand on my own When it is support which you lack

You were to be my bones But there was no enrichment within How am I to walk with vitality When it is dust you became

You were to be my well But there is little to drink I will never be able to slake my thirst For you will always be an oasis
