Catch you when you fall

you should have caught her
now she’s drowned in water
up to her neck
did you forget
the effect
of a fractured heart
when life falls apart

an abandoned guide
no doubt will slide
to buckled knees
hearing her pleas
for early release
too much damage
a hopeless challenge

I should have caught her
I was the daughter
guilt runs unchecked
and goes direct
to infect
a drifting soul that’s broken
by all things left unspoken
