Surfacing

Your blue eyes hypnotized me,
charmed me,
in a dance of pain for far too long.
They were the eyes of someone
who once loved me
and I waited for you to do the same.
But I was wrong-
there was no treasure
in their depths to reach and
only many sour sweet
red herrings to catch.

Now after years of diving
and almost drowning
I also know,
your blue eyes were yours,
not his and
I am not sure now
which one of us committed the greatest sin;
you for receiving a love
you never planned to return to me,
or me for projecting on to you
a person you could never be.
