fragile

i told her
how strong she was
how i admired her
how i wished i could
share her sense of
conviction
and could i ever possibly
understand
how she saw such good in me?

i told her
how brave she was
how courageous and hopeful
she had to be to take
so much undeserved crap from me
no fragile flower was she
and could she ever let anything
stop her
from holding on to her dream of me?

but when i told her
i had to leave her anyway
she collapsed
she broke
she let me see the truth of her
that truth she’d always hidden from me
and suddenly i wanted to do everything
to keep her
always loving me
