Killing words

Hold me now,
I need to feel

I am so ashamed,
I left you behind.
I am out of reasons,
trying not to find you.

So afraid,

I don't belong,
in this silence.

So ashamed,
I left you behind.

Hold me now,
I need to feel complete.

I matter to the words,
that take hold of me.
suppose I let this go,
and feel the end.

what would the reason be,
to believe in me?

hold me now.
I am not well,
if I don't speak
through you.
I am on the wrong side, of
it all.

So guilty,
I killed you off,
left you out.

I am so ashamed.
I am so ashamed,
I killed my words.

You have lost nothing nor ignored anything nor left anything behind babe. All things come when they come and most things are best left to their own pace.
