I never knew my capacity

for love until it overflowed

onto your feet and drowned you long after you hurt me.

Nothing is black and white

nothing –


I underestimated my capacity for understanding

when you looked into my eyes and I saw beyond

the pain you made me feel

because you hurt yourself more.

Beyond my comprehension of why or how –

And then I knew for you unconditional love.
