He and I


He needed me in that moment
I needed him in prior moments
He asked me to be fair
I didn’t know fairness could go one way
He said have heart
I said I lost the use of my mine
He said I’m doing my best
I said your better than your best
He wanted devotion
I wanted to regain mine
He was my warrior
I became his concubine
He left me behind
I decided to rise and survive
He returned empty
I became full
He marched towards me
I passed through him
He wanted my attention
I gave him the finger
He knew it was over
I knew it from the beginning
He asked for forgiveness
I said I gave it
He became no more
I became far more
What was left was the moment
