Sandpaper

I felt myself reaching for you

But there was sandpaper on your skin

And my soul was grazed by the touch

Sensing how it was for you far too much

And how much pain you were in

I am sorry now I could not understand

That what you needed was not what I

Could give

Then

I will take it as another failure

Yet another reminder of my sin

Of how I felt short

Again

Although I tried my best

Sometimes hearts

Just cannot connect

No matter what the intent

And sometimes things are too painful

For affection to flow

In the direction or form we wish

That love would go
