why you couldn’t

i wanted to drown in your world,
escape the breath of safety,
fall to the ecstasy of your being.

i thought that
if you had me at hello,
you could give me everything
your eyes promised–
endless tomorrows and forgotten yesterdays.

you were the flames to
my fire.
i hated how
you were my favorite death.
