Hour by hour the moon continues to rise. She's way too bright and he's as dark as night. Oh what big lies you live. Why are you both so deceiving? Oh look how hard it is to forgive. Where's your excuse for leaving? Run away, get away before he swallows your sanity. She's built her argument on vanity. You found love in the darkest parts, The place where you can't have a heart. She built it on a dream and a delusion. He grew out of that plot and that illusion. She loved him true, the only love she ever knew. In her safest hour on his dimmest day, all she wanted was for him to pay. He meant no harm and she did no wrong. We know they hurt and they're not strong. Little red, my friend, there is no need to pretend that you didn't know this would eventually end. At least in fact, you're both still intact. You're not the victim and you're not the villain. Both born of moon and light, they would always fight. Now the wolf and red are in separate beds. Their story together is a memory.
Another 2013 poem, written about a toxic relationship my friends were in.
