Poles Apart

You were the water, all of it.

But,

I,

Just did not know how to swim.

 

You were the silence, all of it.

But,

Sweetheart I,

Just did not know the quiet.

 

You were the light,all of it.

But, I,

My love,

Was a dark soul.

 

And then came a time when you raised to the sky.

Became it. All of it.

But darling I,

Did not know how to fly.

I just did not know how to fly.
