i built you

i built you
to shield me from the world
with knights, dragons and swords
to fend for the delicate
parts that lie inside

you kept me safe
so that i could go on my path

although i owe you a lot
i no longer need you
i let the water
wash you away now
slowly it drips
so that i no longer have to pretend
that you
are stronger than me
