Becoming the Monster

I had no idea where we stood:

Your feelings for me had confused me from the start,

Mine for you were starting to crack

And I didn’t want you to see


That I was starting to doubt myself.

I never wanted you to think that I was doubting you.

But I was. Of course I was.

Still I didn’t want you to look and see doubt in my eyes.


A green-eyed monster does damn good research.

So I knew: I had done my research.

I just was less sure

Of what it was I actually knew, and what it was I wasn’t supposed to


Because knowing and understanding are two

Entirely different things.

And so with all the information I had

I understood


Nothing at all.
