Shallow Love

With great sadness I came to realize
that I wasn't ever really in love with you
only the thought that I might you possess
never actually planning to follow through

When cold realities of life intervened
my love crumbled under their weight
While you looked to me tenderly for support
I was only seeking a means to escape

It’s indeed shameful to love this way
and even more devastating to feel
It is a great crime I have committed
Seeking forgiveness, I can only kneel

The End
