#1840

If you cared so deeply,
why did you force me to
confront the emptiness alone?

Where were you when nobody else knew
how to stop the shooting pains in my chest?
Their urgency was only to shut me up
so I would not draw attention to myself.
Your urgency was always to shift me to a better place.

I did not need help, I needed you.
