Should [Not] Have Let Go

We were once so intimate,
so closely knit to each other,
walking in light together.

But I got scared as you fell,
and let go of your hand–
I cowered away.

Now darkness consumed you,
eating up your heart,
corrupting your very soul.

Had I been a little braver
and stood up a little firmer,
you wouldn’t have been beyond redemption.

Perhaps it’s too late, but still I’m sorry.
I should’ve been the better sister.
Forgive me. I should not have let go.
