5 Miles To Empty

the man

that you are

makes me wish

that I

wasn’t the man

that Now am.

the very sight of you

in all your splendor,

opens up old wounds

and makes me wish

that I were the kind of man

that could guarantee he would love you forever

and spend his entire life keeping you, like that promise.

but my love

is an ocean,

too shallow

to drown your fears and insecurities.


none the less,

a lifetime

without ever knowing you

would have been

a lifetime
