You thought I was the moon,
It drew you to my breast.
You, as encompassing as ocean waves,
Bluer than the rest.
You followed my body into the dark,
Hoping the light would save you,
Instead as your fingers found flesh,
They turned into daggers, skin wretched.
And yet, I thought you were beautiful,
I was mesmerized by you.
I craved the salt of you against my lips,
I wanted to be-for you.
But soon attraction grew too much,
It unleashed demons from your depths,
I wanted to save you, and myself,
Instead we ended in wreck.
I still wonder about the ways,
You tried desperately to fill the cracks,
Wonder if there was another ending,
One our strategy lacked.
I am still mesmerized by you,
With guilt, and trepidation,
I learned much from the way you held me,
As if I could be your savior.
In your turbulent waves, you looked to me
Like I could be a raft,
My rippling reflection a sign of hope,
My love the end of combat.
In the end, you and I only existed in discord,
Or perhaps that was all along..
Because despite moments of joy,
My self preservation was simply too strong.
