Catastrophe

They never told me  
That beauty is power.  
 
That wholeness is a magnet  
To the fragmented  
 
They never told me  
That I could wound you  
Because of my whims  
 
Yet you would follow
Because you believed  
I could be tamed  
 
Days and days  
I spent as your Summer  
 
Until you realised  
I was winter for another  
 
I never committed  
So in my eyes  
I held no real ties  
 
And now I've  
Been thrown ropes  
From each direction  
 
Each begging me  
For my attention  
 
But I can swim.  
 
I've only learned  
The power of my allure  
After I looked back  
To see all of you.  
 
The ones I thought  
Could go on  
For days and days  
And then just drop.  
 
Be unattached.  
 
Sail your own sea.  
 
Be without me.  
 
A beautiful, whole,
 My own, catastrophe.
