She told him of her weakness
and passed her sorrow on
he embraced every ail and tear and burden
taking them upon himself
in order to free her, resolve her
carry her until she can walk
alone along the broken pavement
steady on, solid ground
with strengthened steps emerging
from the guttural niche
deep pains entombed
and memories like echoes
voices in the cold chamber
never released,never forgot
sometimes he walks beside her
sometimes he must pave her way
sometimes he is a step or two behind
ready when she calls for him
ready to lie down for her cause
burying himself in the gaping flaws
along the path
yet never sacrificing too much
lest he lose the part of himself
she should ever need
