Your lips softly caress my own before you take a step back into the darkness. I can't see your features, but I know you're scared. The cold radiates off you like heat from the sun. I never knew why you trembled, why you shook as I held you close to me, I was clueless. Your wide brown eyes are tightly shut, you can't bear to look around you. I couldn't understand what you were afraid of, you were always safe in my arms. The look you gave me showed the emotions you carried. I finally understood why you were afraid.
It was me.
