And The Worst Part Was

I could have loved you.
I could have loved you so hard,
The oceans pulling your limbs apart would calm
I could have held you tight as the sandstorms pushed and pulled around you
I could have taken those broken shoulders, tired from holding up the expectations from others, and changed them out for mine

I could have loved you so much,
Your mountainous walls would crumble to a small step
So much the festering fires inside would quench their thirst with my single breath
So much the sun could never melt the glue on your wings

I could have loved you,
But I was too scared of my own vast oceans.
My own dancing sandstorms,
My own breaking shoulders.
I was scared of the walls that housed me, holding me in this prison of a mattress.
The fires in my head, that would be set ablaze by a single breath,
And the sun, burning my memories into infinite fragments on my back.

And the worst part was,

Author's Note
Iím always thinking back on my past relationships and how they went. From start to finish. It always seems like I can almost taste it, get a feel for what ďtrue loveĒ is, but itís always gone before I have it. Itís made me paranoid that my feelings are incorrect and Iím just lying to everyone, especially my SO.
