seems like forever
before it leaves a scar behind.
is more like a blindfold in the way
it temporarily makes one go blind,
to the gaping hole of its existence.
I am the bandage
to a wound that I had not caused.
I don’t want to be this tie
that binds your broken pieces together.
I only want to see you whole again,
and if that means without me,
I will be happy for you,
but sad for me.
