Cradle

Once again my boldness has hurt me more than I expected

I let myself off too easily

I decided that to be brave

I had to be vulnerable

So I popped up my bubble


Then I let this angel cradle me into their arms

I told them I loved them

They said they did too

I pleaded with them to leave heaven

And live with me


My plea fell onto deaf ears

Oh no, they heard it actually

But I was not enough

I could never be

So I let go and accepted their visits instead


They said they would keep visiting

But their promise was not kept

And their visits became infrequent

Soon I realized I should have been a coward.
