I Meant


I meant to save you,

I did.


I lived to see you smile.


I meant to shove away

Your darkness.


I think I did for a while.


But some people are just meant

To be broken.


Shattered pieces of glass.


Some things are just,

Past saving.


They were never meant to last.


I meant to open up doors,

In your world.


I meant to set you free.


I forgot to close some doors though,

I forgot


To save you from me.


Believe me when

I say


I only wish you the best.


I suppose in order to,

Do that.


It’s me you’ll have to forget.


I only meant to

Save you.


From the demons inside you.


I’m sorry I couldn’t

Save you.


You didn’t want me to.

    This is the fear most of us have,right? K the other person might just see the devil in us nd there will be no turning back. No face saving left.
    Really good piece.
