Left Behind

I often walked too fast for you

So I reached for your hand

Hoping to pull you along beside me

But instead you gave me your heart

I emptied all my pockets to hold it

And with that I took the lead

Slowly walking out of your eyesight

I didn’t want to be too far out of reach

So I began to leave a trail

With the only thing I continued to carry

Small bloody bits here and there

But you never caught up

And I ran out of pieces
