To Have Without Holding

I have this friend you see
With chocolate eyes that joked
Always laughing and forever kind to me
Through my darkest days
he was there
To demand a smile
And request my care
He was my dog dare
My brilliant blue diamond, so rare
I fell too fast, I fell too hard
I left without a fight but remain scarred
I felt too scared and was never more aware
Of the troubles that belied love
Too late I shared, too late I bared my soul
Now the truth is my love is leaking
Leaking from a big black hole

Thanks second lover for grabbing that bowl
