Of all the people I ever met, I thought I knew you the most intimately.
Of all the people I ever knew, I loved you the most fiercely.
Of all the people I ever loved, I was the most wide open to you.
Of all the people in all my life, you knew
most thoroughly my inner and outer terrain.
And yet, until that evil day,
you began to believe her lies about me,
there did not exist a love pure as mine for you.
And yet, you withdrew.
Body, soul, heart untrue.
