I knew a man who turned pain into jokes
I mistook his weakness for bravery
I looked up to him
For so long
That I never noticed myself falling
I mistook my falling for slipping away
Thought I wasn’t enough to be close to him
I am attracted to the idea that you will come back to me
We stood together
When I saw us as equal
But you move further and further
I fall deeper and deeper
