and yet…

…and yet

as i watch you

squeeze your eyes together.

hoping your heart won’t betray

you. by dripping to the floor

at my feet.

i feel like breaking inside.

our whole everything

 reduced to this moment.

as your sadness.

combined with my own.

threatens to drown the world.

i realize:

i’m sorry.

i can’t be your juxtaposition.
