You were supposed to love
Me, besides my faults and moods.
To pick me up when I fell, and
Carry me when I could not carry on.
I once cared what you thought of me,
How could I not, having admired you
Since youth? I fought against each
Disappointment, believeing this time
Will be different- It never was.
Now I push myself away, as you
Will not move. I push myself to protect
Against the bitterness and sorrow. Now
Your slips will no longer pull tears
Down my face. I am alone, but
Then again, I always was
