When you let someone go...

11:17 PM

I tried to save the day,
To swoop in like a mighty warrior
And defeat the foes who were breaking down your door.
But my armor was not strong enough for two
And if I gave it to you then I would l be left unprotected.

Perhaps it is the most honorable to sacrifice one's self
But I was too afraid.
My words were big, but my soul was not as calloused.
I had the courage to stand on my feet
And I possibly the gumption to survive,
But I couldn't fight your battles
And I couldn't protect your heart.

I can't be your hero.
You must save yourself.
