If Only

I will not assume I know

the first thing about you,

as you have done with me.

 

I won’t ask how a star

became a stone

at the bottom of the sea.

 

The case of us cannot be solved

‘til you begin confessing –

the nature of your wound unknown,

lest you unwrap the dressing.

 

So let us walk down separate roads.

On this, may we concur.

If only you weren’t who you are,

but who I thought you were.
