I am SO SORRY little boy
Little boy who you once were. I am so terribly sorry, even though I did not know you as a child.
Today you are a beautiful young man, with a black hole where your heart was supposed to be
I have walked to the edge of that hole and tasted the tar.
Once I fell asleep next to you and I woke up sick, from heavy dreams of disaster, and a strong urge to hold you, keep you safe --- and a confusion over the evil of human beings
I AM SO SORRY that they took your humanity away from you. I look into your eyes but I can't find your soul there.
But I can't slay your dragon. Only you can.
