+ Plus - Poem by Christopher Cariad
The fear that came over me,
when you pulled me away,
and told me that secret you’ve kept.
The anger I had when it hit me.
We held each other,
our lips had been locked in a passionate moment.
And now it has all but been cleared away,
with that disease you tried to hide.
I didn’t know how to deal with such a revelation.
So I ran away.
Pulled myself as far away from your presence as I could.
But it never worked.
I couldn’t help but feel for you.
I loved you unconditionally,
but had no clue on what to do.
I used the only protection I knew,
and that was to push you away.
I just can’t watch your life,
come crashing down.
I just can’t see you descend into the ground.
