Apple of My i

  • I loved you because you were the one.
  • I loved you because you were my sun.

 

  • I loved you because you were all, and more,
  • Than I ever could have hoped for.

 

  • I loved you because you were exciting and daring.
  • Come to think of it, and a double smidge erring.

 

  • I needed the drama and trauma.
  • I needed the chiseling and sniveling.

 

  • I needed an escape hatch,
  • and so unto you I latched.

 

  • But in my youthful exuberance, I failed to see, 
  • that I would become entangled and entrapped without a key.

 

  • In time the snare grew tighter and tighter,
  • making me weaker, and mightier.

 

  • And so,
  • I loved you until I was all loved out.
  • I loved you until my well ran dry
  • Ioved you until I had to live or die.
  • I loved you until my Soul I could not deny.

 

  • Then the journey of a lifetime began
  • Our Soul Contract I had to disband.

 

  • You were my master, and I was your slave.
  • You called the shots, and I gladly obeyed.

 

  • I hithered, and thithered, 
  • running myself into a withered fritter.

 

  • Aiming to please was my only desire 
  • Lest you give me an eye full of fire.

 

  • God gave me the strength of an ox
  • And used it I did hauling all your rocks.

 

  • God gave me an intellect clear as light,
  • And shine it I did, unto the night of your plight.

 

  • This way I would have continued for everlasting eternity 
  • But for some unbeknownst reason to me, Love gave me pity.

 

  • From Their crown, Love looked down and said, “Enough!”.
  • And a mighty hand grabbed me by the scruff.

 

  • Pulled me up and out They did,
  • Showed me my Heart that was hid.

 

  • Then They told me to fly fly fly,
  • And always keep Love as the apple of my i.

 

  • God’s Love is deep, merciful, abundant, and eternal,
  • Irena As I Am and Mudryk, Our capacity to love is limited. Tis the human condition.
