I wish to never walk in your shadow again.
With every failure, there was an “I told you so.”
With every success, a “You didn’t earn this.”
These thoughts are not mine.
I did not come here
But then there was you.
Charming, brave, and irreplaceable.
You brought me into love,
but trapped me in with fear.
No matter how I pushed away,
you pulled me in harder.
I was no match
for your sense of duty,
No matter how sick you grew,
I was always the one to blame.
No matter how much I loved you,
It was always you who gained.
