I coaxed you into my life
like a wild animal and loved you too hard.
Like when the fox said to the Little Prince,
To you I am nothing more than a fox
like a hundred thousand other foxes.
But if you tame me, then we shall need
each other. To me, you will be unique
in all the world. To you, I shall be unique
in all the world.
You are my fox, and I am just a hunter.
A hundred others would’ve come,
but they would’ve worn you like a scarf.
I’m a terrible keeper, but I’m yours.
You let me remove your heart
with a machete, when I couldn’t take
away your nature, and sew it back after.
