unhook

how could i have escaped your stare?
the doe-eyed pup that followed me to the edge
how could i have unhooked you from your fate?
a persistent pest, but you weren’t a pest
you were a poet, patient, awaiting for your chance
i granted you hope as my gratitude
but you took it as a full fledged promise of faith
a pledge to never leave my side
share your virtues and plight
we were connected
how could i have escaped your stare?
how could i have unhooked you from your fate?
so, i swam up to you,
falling into your trap
