Words

What can I say to you
about you
without wounding?

My every word a weight
by which you judge yourself
success or failure

I cannot bring myself
to injure you
with what I think is true

Facing such profound fragility
and infantile defense
it is only cruelty to convey

How far short you fell
from what my small heart needed
all along
