Feels like we’re going different directions,
as if you wouldn’t miss my presence,
as if you wouldn’t notice my absence.
I let you become my sun, only wanted to be with you.
I thought I wasn’t worthy of you, asked to be only a distant moon.
Unbeknownst to me and you, I was always more than we assumed.
I didn’t understand the fire, trapped under pressure.
Hidden away, cloaked in the pain, becoming something we couldn’t see coming.
The illusion of invisibility bursts
when we collide.
