What You Missed

perhaps to you
I was a desert
with a heat that burned
too harshly;
filled with oases of
false promises
where snakes hide
under the sand
ready to sink
poison into you

in reality, I was
a great forest
filled with cool winds
and shaded sunlight;
covered in soft
green mosses
for you to lay
your head upon
as you watched the
canopies above,
all filled with birdsong
I’d written just for you
