I know you’d have me disappear.
But that’s an option that won’t cohere.
Believe me, I’ve tried it before.
As I merely made it to the shore.
For the ocean screamed at me.
And the wrath of its waves caused me to flee.
So I wandered haplessly beneath the steel towers.
As the sweltering heat caused me to cower.
I pondered. I reviewed. I grappled. I chewed.
On how to show love and help you too.
The complexity and beauty and pain of this riddle.
Is smothered by unostentatious taradiddles.
Where we go from here I do not know.
I’m just reversing course on this rabbit hole.
But as reality holds, I may not escape.
This maze in my mind, where love takes shape.
So if I vanish in time from now til the end.
Know I am love and you… are my friend.
