I cannot let you hold my happiness
For your hand to caress or to drop
It is not healthy It is not safe
For your happiness to depend on another
I’m taking it back but no longer remember
How to take care of it myself
I am numb, no longer aware
Yet somehow the pain still finds a way
I will no longer nag, I will no longer care
