With such an innocent aura
And wide eyes,
He understands the dilemma
That threatens his life on the daily.
Broken bones and a shattered heart,
They aren't the reasons why he stays.
Because his confidence is as small as
His overall being and form,
And not a bit of it is his fault.
Somehow, he still hopes,
Hoping to see him change again,
And maybe that a happy ending
Lies at the bottom of the guilt
That only builds in his guts.
