like a pebble skipping across an ocean, it was only a matter of time before you broke my surface and descended into my depths.
i kept you quickly skimming along the best i could, but the outcome of it all was inevitable. now that you’ve started sinking into my darkness, there is no turning back. the farther you travel, the more truths of mine will be exposed, and each increase in distance will further reveal the countless faults of my being. i know you deserve so much more than what lies in the crevices that define me, yet you stay around and dig continually further. i fall in love with you more complexly in every moment you search through me, but you’ll eventually reach my edges, and i wonder if you’ll quit me then. if you don’t, i will surely believe in the meaning of forever,
and know that you and i define it.
