The One That Gets You

                                                                                                                                           

It is always

only about you.

Even those open eyes

were just to draw me close.

Oblivious

to what you really are.

One fantasy

begets another dose.

                                                                                                                                           

There is no hope,

our course was set

long before we ever met.

Have imagined our arrangement

in the stars.

                                                                                                                                           

I bet you never thought

you’d meet one like me.

Small enough to disregard

when it suits you,

but large enough

to bring you to your knees.

                                                                                                                                           

In your darkest heart

you’ve begged

for me to appear

and take away your tears.

Now that I am here,

your vision is elsewhere.

                                                                                                                                           

And that’s probably

for the best,

to be true;

as I punch through

your powder blue

and end you.
