Leadership

Reach out

and take my hand.

Quickly,

as the ground underneath you

crumbles,

and I watch you fall

down

into that perfect darkness.

                                                                                                                                          .

Would it have been too much

for me

to not have lead you astray?

                                                                                                                                          .

Claimed I was onto something

beautiful,

and you followed,

because you believed.

                                                                                                                                          .

Turns out I was lying to myself.

Turn by turn,

you fell into addiction.

                                                                                                                                          .

Every time,

it gets easier

after that first time.

                                                                                                                                          .

I see in your eyes

that you trusted me,

as the ground beneath your feet

gives way.

                                                                                                                                          .

In them,

there is no hint of accusation,

just a look

of total disbelief

that I failed you.

                                                                                                                                          .

                                                                                                                                          .
