I never knew how fast a feeling state
Could change a place of safety and of hope
Into a place of battle and of fear,
And find myself without a way to cope.
In the newness of my time with you,
I learned to trust and feel the joy of life.
I was safe in sharing my thoughts
and sought connection, without strife.
I did not know ahead what was to come
When you were being you, and I just me.
I wish I could erase the space between
The time of trust; what came to be.
We did not have the skills to overcome
The past and present traumas that came.
The burdens were too much to bear.
Nothing could remain the same.
left pieces of myself
Scattered,. It seems beyond repair.
The “you” I use to know, has
Disappeared into thin air.
