ode to lovers v

Posted on in My Creative Content

Who is this, who loves you better than I did?

I loved you like the earth loves the sun,
like the moon loves to light the earth

I loved you like I would want to be loved,
like I imagined you would want to be loved

desperately, like a plague,
like the flame you made me

I out-poured myself whole
I out-poured myself the best I could

yet this could not sustain you
could not sustain an “us”
