There You Were (Double Entendre Poem)

Location

When  I took a hard fall,

there you were.

When I had a broken heart,

there you were.

 

When I’d  broken my first bone,

there you were.

When I cried my tears,

there you were.

 

When I was scared,

there you were.

When I couldn’t see you,

there you were.

 

When I tried to give up,

there you were.

When I gave up on you,

there you were.

 

With your promises and

commitment,

your truth,

our ties.

 

When you said you’d never hurt me,

Turns out they were all lies.

Past the pain,

behind the past.

 

Tried to fix what was broken,

but what you’d damaged was

far beyond repair.

Then I look up to find you,

and unlike always

you simply weren't there.
