I sight


I thought I was
good enough
strong enough
lovable enough
I thought I was enough
for you
Maybe I wasn’t enough
for me

Your face was mine
mine was yours
You looked in the face of another
of others
and now of God
for answers
for your truth

You speak your truth now
that is so painful
to you
to me
to us

I would have gone to the end of the earth for you
I thought you would do the same for me
I was wrong
I know that now

I don’t define you
You don’t define me
I never did

I lost sight of you
I lost sight of me
I lost sight of us
I lost

You lost sight of yourself
You lost sight of me
You lost sight of us
You lost

Maybe when you come to the end
of this path
of destruction
of searching
you will find
the love of yourself
the love you had all along
that was here for you from me
that you carelessly threw away

I am brave
strong
angry
fearful
sad
capable
of loving myself
of leaving you
of loving someone else

I know that now

I’m sorry I didn’t love you enough
I’m sorry I loved you too much
