You Were The Moment

You are the moment
before

the ship & the iceberg
...meet.

The difference between
having it all &

having nothing at all.

Your love
the only thing

I ever wanted
to own

yet could never
possess

my thirst
of Tantalus

my Sisyphus’s stone

my paradox
of pleasure

my dichotomy
of pain

& what’s worse


I loved you
despite it.
