I couldn’t do
Anything to stop it
I couldn’t do
Anything to help you
Why couldn’t I have
Done something?
Why couldn’t I have
Saved you?
I never wanted
You to get hurt
I never wanted
To pull away from you
But my heart was
Breaking slowly
My heart was
Still incomplete
I tried but
It wouldn’t mend
I tried but
The pain remained
But I found myself falling
In love with you
I found myself falling
Farther from the pain
Your smile is
What heals me
Your smile is
What saved me

This is in no way about me. I wrote this for a couple of story characters.
