i shivered, cowering


i shivered, cowering

you focused, tactlessly

i followed, aimlessly

a blindness, unconscious

of empty sentiments

i wouldn’t understand

or couldn’t comprehend

a future exhausted

this condemned direction

held rapture fleetingly

one without refusal

eyes ceding discretion

i thinking, mistaking

i could’ve succeeded
