My memories are but cloudy images and feelings I had being around you.
I wanted to protect you from hurt, wreckless anger and abandonment.
As a child, I was your protector and caretaker.
Unaware as I was, that it was you who should have been protecting me.
I thought you were the only person who truly cared for me, stunned when my trust was betrayed.
When I no longer could survive by myself, let alone take care of you,
I became a useless and unnecessary part of your life.
You left me alone, to fight for myself.
But I failed, because I only knew how to fight for you.
