I am no longer searching for reasons of why you would leave me.
Watching the lines grow deeper on your face
every time that I
"I'm not going anywhere."
You have chimed, again and again.
Frustrated and flickering in and out of consciousness,
but resilient enough to repeat yourself
Like a faint, but still glowing lightbulb,
in a cold basement cellar.
You do not light the way, but you provide some
comfort and warmth.
And without you I would certainly be
left in the dark.
You are safe.
I like that as time has gone on, I have crushed your castle walls,
piece by piece.
There are moment where I still find sensitive spots,
and I can see your shell snap shut around you whenever I run my

I have learned how you live your life like a current.
Drifting from place to place,
simply along for the ride.

to get some rest,
or just recharge, if only for a moment.
But when a blinking, bleeding heart,
still beating and bright,
says it is lost, and in need of more light,
you might draw the curtains a little more tight,
just for the night,
and wake up in darkness.
When I demanded you light my way after I had
subdued your sunshine,
why would you leave anything unsaid?
But then again,
why wouldn't you?
