10 minute sonnet 002, 05-19-2016 - "I fell apart"

I fell apart, felt your love like a shroud
left burning on my skin. I drank the well
of poisoned waters deep, and so I fell
into the false realities allowed

to filter my mind, sifted truth from you
and me, and in my manic panic fled
the words, spoke truthfully but broken, read
by you with eyes I can't perceive, in lieu

of what I'm sure escaped us both. We tread
the waters of what never could, let fall
our hearts, knees grounded, hit a wall
as both saw what we wanted to: the red

of love we didn't know was no. The heart
survives, still beating- can you hear? Coarse start.
