Slipping Up

slipping up
forgive me for
trying too hard to

be the man I thought
you wanted,

watch me slip,
watch me fall,

see my weaknesses
reveal themselves

before your sad
alluring eyes

that I love
that calm me

that capture me
that kill me,

forever no mercy for
this clumsy knight

knocked from his
high horse,

bruised
on frozen soil,

humiliated by his own
mistakes,

I say the wrong things,
I make the wrong moves

in my foolish attempt to
get closer to you,

forgive me for
trying

falling
failing,

feeling defeated,
imprisoned in silence,

forgive me for
loving you,

I’m sorry
it happened.
