Neverlove

Proof I wasn’t broken when we met

I loved unguarded

Neither life vest nor safety net entered into the equation of me plus you
I just trusted my breath and followed the man who’d stolen it from me

I trusted

Not knowing you couldn’t

Never expecting you’d studied me, unwilling instead to blindly follow wherever your heart might take you

I was a calculated move for you

Where did that get you but gone
And I can no longer breathe
