Smothered

And in those hands that caress
Love that shows in the way they touch
They sparkle in their eyes
Affirming all the same

And as time passes, without realization
The holding hand smothers
In name of protection and love
It is fear that replaces

And in that nature of protection
They curb what is inherently their
And in the protection of their warmth and gaze
They slowly kill their own beloved.
