I asked for this to happen

I tempted fate  

Flew too close to the sun

Played with fire     


I disguised truths

Faked my strength   

Pretended myself in  

Wore the mask that didn’t fit


Feelings come like waves

I got caught in the undertow   

I dove too deep

Lost my ability to breathe     


And I washed up   

Dazed but not drowned   

The whirlpool a memory  

And my feet on the ground    


I waded into the water   

Told myself I could swim  

I feigned a false reality  

And tried to coast on it     


I knew better all along  

Realized more than my eyes observed  

Love is a fickle fragmented friend  

And intuition is my lover
