I love too much

And

I love too strong,

That’s my weakness,

I made you a goddess

Created poems

Like scripture,

Written on parchment

In holy water

And wine,

Molded religion to your birth

Made you the cosmos,

That’s how I speak

How I spoke

When I was manic,

I haven’t known myself

For four years

But I knew

That I loved you

Maybe too much

Maybe too strong

But I loved you,

Wrote poems

Out of the lithosphere

Even in long distance,

Even in depression

I loved you

Maybe too much

Maybe too strong

But I loved you,

I wrote you as God,

As beauty personified

I gave you my soul

Bare,

I gave you my world

You were my world

The hope

In depression,

But that was it

I loved too much

I loved too strong

So we couldn’t work,

I’m tired

I gave

I gave you all I could

And

It wasn’t enough,

It was never enough,

My bones ache

My body weeps

And I’m done,

Done writing you poems

Done giving you love

Done giving you me.
