To lay it all bare

what once appeared

so complicated

but was

in actuality

quite simple

I loved you

adored you

venerated you

mythologized you

beyond anything

you could have

possibly achieved

anything anyone

could possibly


so that you

shined on

a plain of existence

no human being

had ever

could ever

have scaled

and you became

everything to me

so that I grew

in turn


far less in nature

less than worthy

of your reticent

warmed over


and this

state of affairs

became fact

for both of us


we both believed

so strongly

so vehemently

until the end

and perhaps

long after

living in echoes

of that which

had seemed complex

but became merely

a slow-witted

failure of manners

a simple disaster
