I’ve loved you beyond measure

But measure isn’t good enough

I became lost broken darkness

A tumbling wild contradiction

Following paths formerly laid

By others I would’ve despised

All easy roads look promising  

When finished with iron pyrite       

I wish now felt more like fiction

Mistakes- too late to take back

And all truths have convictions

But I have reconciled to the facts

I’m punctuated as a mere asterisk

Undersize text within your…footnotes

  1. I know this well. “When finished with iron pyrite” caused a chuckle after I understood the implications. You pack so much in each line.

    Thank you for sharing these heartfelt lines.
