Prism

I used to think
that you were hard
to love.
I knew
of your painful past,
your shattered self,
your broken body,
so I tried.
I gave you
the very best of me
and I could never explain
why it was not enough.
It was not until much later
did I realize
that I was expecting love
from someone
who was incapable
of such a selfless act.
