I'm sorry
I never thought it would come to this
It never crossed my mind
That you would have to make a choice
I'm just a stranger anyway

What words could I have said?
Would you have believed me anyway?
How could I let this happen?
I swore that I'd protect you
And now I'd give anything just to go back

I'd take your place in a heartbeat
Just let it be me and you'd go free
Why on earth can't I rewind time?
You're all alone now
I promised that we'd leave together

I failed you
Could you ever forgive me?
What no earth have I done
This is all my fault, Ib
Can you hear me?

I'll scream and I'll scream
While despair will take hold
Choking the life out of me
You were so close
And I let you slip through my fingers

Now I want nothing but to go back
Back to that horrible world
Where now you are trapped
By yourself
Do you blame me?

You're just a little girl
And I let you get drawn back into that awful place
I never thought it would come to this
Would you ever forgive me?
I'll never find out

I'm sorry
So sorry
Take me
Take me instead
Just like they wanted

I'd give anything to take your place
I'm just a stranger anyway
So I wrote another Ib poem. This one is in Garry's point of view, right after the "Ib Al Alone" ending, where Ib gets trapped in the gallery by herself because she didn't take Garry's hand at the end, and went with the fake version of her mother. I saw a piece of fanart once (that I cannot find but it was perfect) of Garry on one side of the painting, calling out to Ib who was on the other side. That's what inspired this, basically. It's Garry's reaction to not being able to save Ib. It really breaks my heart.
