I was so intense that I exhausted you
And made you think it was love
that wore you out.
You spent days being spent
like an inadvertent swim to hold off drowning.
There’s only so long a person will drift
before thier lungs give out.
I guess I suffocated you but you loved it
And it was great, and horrible and weird
And don’t act like I threw my own self into tangents.
You’d request an ocean
And I spilled.
