Had I Known

Had I known

I would not

Have followed you.

Had I known

I would not 

Have adored you.

Had I known

 

Had I known

I would not 

Have lost time

Smelling the subtle

Scent of the pillow

 

Had I known

I would have

Focused on me,

But I was empty

Had I known

I was right

To fight 

To kneel down

To scrutinize

Your Christ-like figure

All night.

Had I known

I would not 

Have succumbed

Smelling the subtle

Scent of the pillow

Embracing your shadow.

Had I known.
