Sorry you had to see that.

I’m sorry I went and shattered your picture of me.
I’m sorry I was broken,
Just like everyone else I know.
I’m sorry I broke your heart Mama,
I was never as perfect as you dreamt me.
I’ve been losing fuel for days,
And you never saw the cracks in my side.
Never noticed the lopsided way I walked.
Now, I did strap stilts to one foot
In an attempt to look normal.
I learned pretty well how to fake it.
So I’m sorry you had to see that mama,
Sorry you saw when the deep down blues got their hands on me.
I tried to keep you safe….
I just couldn’t keep you safe….
