you are too beautiful to be this burdened.
i'm sorry you carry so much on your shoulder.
and none that passes could take it away from you.
for the key to unlocking you,
breaking you free from your voluntary shackles,
lies not within me but on someone else.
for a second i thought, i could liberate you.
i believed in my patience
and the warmth i bring.
i thought i could light you up
instead i'm the one that ended up in flames,
while you continue to seek that which you have lost,
forgive me for my delusions,
and ideas of grandeur.
i was wrong to think,
that we could've had something wonderful,
that i could've changed your mind,
and that i could've made the one to make you stay.
for a second i thought i had you there,
some of you,
most of you,
perhaps all of you,
and then none of you at all.
