You were grabbing onto my heart with your tiny hands
But you never realized
How tightly I was holding onto you
Trying to protect you from that vicious cycle
But the wheels were already turning
Already that friction was breaking me down
Breaking down the bond between us
That I had double-knotted with precaution
I was pulling with all of my strength
But you were stronger
Yet, you didn’t pull along with me
Nor against me
You let go.
After I had been breaking my back
Leaning over the ledge of the cliff
The cliff you were hanging off of
Desperately giving you both of my hands
When you needed only one
You let go.
You thought you were the strongest one
But when you let go
There was still gravity
And I can only hope you land safely
For I cannot fly
