I can’t help you if you won’t help yourself.

We dance on the border
of sugar coating truths
& wanting to be completely honest.

But in truth,
there is a layer of hurt
that, once breached,
we cannot come back from.

I want to be able
to look you in the eyes,
tell you what’s in my heart
without speaking lies,

You on the receiving end
knowing intentions are good
from where I stand,
but I cannot help you if you will not help yourself.
