You are intense. A deep feeling, affection.
To all those, I’ve loved before there is no one true love.
You weren’t right for me.
I wasn’t right for you.
I’m sorry Rosaline.
That makes the both of us, the world, and reality, too
A spectrum, choices. Soulmates? What a joke.
To Aphrodite, I mean no harm. To Eros, your tipped arrows are futile.
All the more while, as I cross the Nile, I can’t help but smile.
You are a journey, you’re a leap of faith.
I have fallen, I have soared above the Heavens, I have walked the woods alone.
I’ve stumbled, cracked, shattered, Gorilla Glued it back all over again. Endless, a void, a pit, a cycle.
Liquid running down my face, is this what you do to me?
Do I hear the splutters of joy & laughter?
Or am I singing Apollo’s sorrow & throwing my “happily ever after?”
You hold no bounds. Inanimate, animate.
Even the wall our fathers built shall not withhold me from you.
I love you, my sweet Juliette.
You’re a double-bladed dagger, you tricky emotion.
The ultimate happiness or the shatterer of the vital organ. The most dangerous yet sought out.
Tied for first, happiness & money you could do your worst.
You’re not winning against this strong force. I’ve tried & I won’t lie, it is inevitable.
Stronger than any potion, out of the hands of any Goddess or God, & even between you & me.
So please, take me somewhere I’ll be free. Maybe we weren’t “meant to be” in this life. I’ll meet you in death if it has to be.
