TEARS

 

You are strength itself.

You do miraculous things

that others wouldn't even try.

 

Seeking redemption you changed your life.

Seeking love you let me in;

and then I make you cry.

 

I did that.

Me

 

You've kept your heart sheltered,

locked up, chained;

now it is suddenly exposed,

susceptible to pain, but you mask it.

You will not let me see.

 

Sometimes I speak before I think

and with a careless word,

cut you deeper than could any sword or blade.

You turn and walk away,

betrayed by your unprotected heart

and me.

 

I let you go.

I cannot bear your tears.
