watering i’s…   [POEM]

i messed up
loving halfheartedly
i should have given time
but i instead chose honesty
and so i became more or less
the promise of probably
i gave my all, partially
the perfect peace to a problem
was a part of me
i knew this awhile before now
but i had parted, free

you feel insignificant
my attention is inconsiderate
not for intention,
but because of ignorance
you insinuate otherwise
but my sense is intimate
you want more from me
i want something all different
we both want it now, instantly

i messed up
loving you halfheartedly
i should have given you time
but i instead chose honesty
and so i became more or less
the promise of your probably
i gave you my all, partially
the perfect peace to your problem
was a part of me
i knew this awhile before now
but we had parted, free

i resent the way that led us here
i present you that said just clear
going through the motions
because we had no focus, near
i was still wanting my wants
and you were far from hopeless,
cheers
would have been better off, on
but we kept missing that train, it’s gone
and now we’re here

i messed up, bad
loving you halfheartedly, mad
i should have given you time
but i chose the honesty i had
and so i became more or less
a promise, and you’re probably, sad
i gave you my all, partially instead
the perfect peace to your problem was led
but was a part of me, fed
i knew this awhile before now,
but we were already dead
and we had parted, free, to laugh.
