It snares you, not because you deserve it,
and not because you were really ready for it.
You were as ready as you could be, but desparately
going in the opposite direction.
And it caught you anyway!
This truth is drastic.
It loves you too much to let you live.
Not that it has feelings for you, it doesn't.
It knows you can't touch it.
So, it won't smother you.
Far from it.
It doesn't have any space for you at all in it.
All it can do is snare you.
