addiction

I know this routine 
Whether you do 
Or not 

I know what to do 
What to say 
How to act 

To keep you safe 
Others safe 
Myself safe 

I know when to redirect 
How to redirect 
How do distract 

I know usually if you're in your room
You're safe 
You're alive 

Until you're in the kitchen
Or the living room 
Or downtown 

Until you have a knife 
Or get angry 
Or get sad 

I know you'll be okay 
And I'll be okay 
As long as I watch you  

As long as you're safe
