day 16: love letter bomb

come doe, i said
and you stepped forth
on timid legs
towards the north

we swam oh did we swim
in a sky of gems
spinning them
with our eyes
laughing over
seagull's cries

avuncular i was to be
instead an icy hand
gripped at my mind
i cast you out

blind and
still amidst the lights and sounds
and lost, you were
i raised my fist
when you returned
begone, i hissed
and gone you were

spurned, you ran
spurred now by threats
limitless as they could get
in a black sea

but you were mighteous
it hurt you less than me
