Coward 10/15/13

The moment you took your
First breath
They placed you
Into my arms
And in my arms
You took
Your last

If nothing else
Gives me comfort
Knowing that you were
Held and loved and
You knew you were safe
When you left this hell
You left it from the
Shelter of my arms
And the warmth
Of my arms
Were wrapped
Around you

It's nights like these
That undo me
Nights like these
When I wish I had
The courage
To open my veins
And bleed my
Hurts and my
And my blinding
Out onto the floor

But I'm too much of
A coward
But it seems that lately
My courage is building
