He peeled away layers of me,
In seconds.
Told me he would reach for the stars
If I wanted one.
Swore to me he would never leave
And I believed him.

This isn’t sorcery
Not a trick of the mind
Or a slight of hand.

He promised fields of ivory
Seas blue as the sky
Loyalty as thick as tar
Permanence in a temporary world.

It was all I wanted to hear
From him
When I was found.
innocence lost
