Poem Love

You stood with me at the water
As you spoke my hands balled into fists
My heart cringed
Your brow furrowed
I inquired
Protested even
I tried to laugh
And then I died

I did not expect you
Maybe I did
I gathered my hurt
I gathered my strength
You wanted to talk
I wanted to fight
I tried to hate you
And then I died
