I took for so long…
I didn't realize I was taking my own life away.
I idealized so hard-
I didn't realize I was leaving reality.
And then I knew.
And then a mirror was cast in front of me.
I gave all my life away lovingly.
I was loyal.
Even though it was not reciprocated,
Even though my efforts were cast away as meaningless,
& my love was called a lie.
I sit completely vulnerable.
I sit and wait for the universe-
to balance itself,
