Miss Interpretation

“I love you so much,” he said
“you are my rock”

as she thought:

you are my rock too
the rock tied to my feet
pulling me
to the bottom of life’s ocean
taking in water
with every p a s s i n g day
immersed in disappointment
asphyxiated with regret

the realization of wasted years
caused rivulets of despair
and hopelessness
down both

as he thought:

she really does love me
