crush, part 4.

too long i have fallen for
words on a page
ideas in my brain

too long have i bowed down
and worshiped aphrodite
with Jehovah's name on my lips

too long have i made idols
of the flesh and blood
who could not bear my shame for me

but you feel like home
because you are yourself
and somehow i cannot change you

as much as my language tries
to translate you from friend to lover
my heart reminds me you are brother

what i'm saying is
you deserve better than me
and if you find another who can love you better

i love you enough to love her too
and i love you enough to hold you loosely
because you were never mine to begin with
