His Love is Like…

loving him is like
being strapped to a stake
set aflame
in a fire untamed
or lowered into a pit of snakes
inverted
feel the earthquake
and my soul shake
unnerved
I literally quiver
my foundation evaporates
a hurricane, with mile-high waves
a sea I can’t part
patchwork feelings of guilt and shame
my only mistake was taking more of his heart
yet, letting him go was for my sake
