Apology

I never meant
for you to love me
the way I loved you—
which was secretly
and entirely
without justification.
I never meant
for you to follow me
into the briars of language
where meaning and intent
so easily tangle.
I never meant
for you to find me
in my shadow land
and ask if all my poems
were for you.
I never meant
to break your heart
when I told you
never enough
will be the way
I’ll always love you.
