Not Good Enough.


You see?
That brightest star, in my dismally grim universe?
That was You.
Or that sunrise-
Blasting crimson blood and glittery gold-
That was you, in my empty sky.
Twinkle of the moist eye;
That longingness-
That was You.
And listen!
Can you hear?
Pounding of the delirious heart?
That betraying loyalty:
That was You.
Humming of the hunter?
That selfish love;
That was You.
You see now?
All so prim
Everything Perfect
That was You.
You were the balanced mind and a working plan,
I was the crazy heart and a misaligned map.
It was me all along, you see now?
I was not good enough.
For You.
