My life is a mess.
It is my duty to protect
you from the same experience.
Hence, I need to maintain a painful distance.
You shine like the brightest star in the sky
but currently, I am saying goodbye
to everything in my life.
Each day is becoming more difficult to survive.
I love you with my whole heart
yet I need to keep you physically apart
from me so you don’t get hurt.
I am saving you from dust and dirt.
I can’t let the darkness in me
dim the light that you carry.
I can’t shine my radiance.
I am being at a distance for your happiness.
