Maybe one day you’ll learn

To protect me as I protect you

Nourish me as I nourish you

Perhaps you won’t

It is a risk I have not yet decided I am able to take

I’ll try

But, there is a chance I will not succeed

A chance as others have that I will flee before you

I’m sorry, just in case

Know though, come what may, I love you


I wish that I could articulate to you how I need

What I need

That somehow I could show you how fragile this safe house of yours is

Worn by storms


Reality beyond years

My strong slate roof hiding only just the bowed limbs of fear


I try

To safe guard you against your demons

Because, again, I love you

Please, now, show me you love me too
