What is more heartbreaking than seeing the one you cherish the most fall apart? Worst thing is that you want to invade his personal space but you just can’t… cause he would not allow you… circumstance would not allow you… as much as you want to, you just can’t. The most you can do for him is to pick up the shattered pieces, collect them and keep them; You know those pieces make up his whole being and you don’t want him to disappear, you don’t want him to lose himself.
Why do you do it? Simply because you care for him and you’d rather bleed picking him up than see him vanish bit by bit.
