I held you in the hollows of my arms
Lifting and supporting you
As you cringed further below
Trying to hide from the eyes
That you once thought adored you.
Insinuating eyes that now follow you
Into every nook and bend
Until you feel cornered
And overpowered by it’s presence.
No the eyes are not there now
But you are overwhelmed with guilt
Which makes you see them everywhere.
My attempts to comfort you are all in vain
Yet I give not up, for you are mine
And mine you’ll always be
I’ll forever protect you
And catch you from falling further.
You are safe beneath my wings.
