light the torch

maybe if I
hadn't been so
and needy for
attention when I was
at my weakest
I wouldn't have
let you scar me
so bad.
you probably
remember how
you opened up to me,
well let me tell you
your carcass broke and
I know who you are,
behind that darkness
you pretend so well
you're the weakest
person I've ever known

and I loved you anyway
I admired you anyway
but took the chance
and didn't follow you
