(Att)r(ack)tion

I’ve ruefully made many a
breaking blunder,
you’ve been ailment-induced
by ferocious thunder.

I’ve conjured dilemma from
the blankest of slates,
you’ve held out the
most tantalizing of baits.

I’ve solemnly sulked under
your contrite sight,
you’ve unwound into me,
liberating your plight.

I’ve gifted you with the
most unconditional love,
you’ve relished it all,
then given me a shove.

I’ve crafted the loveliest of
tokens for you to caress,
you’ve treated me as if
I am the luckiest less.

I’ve been the victim of
your dizzied heart,
you’ve been injured
by my overpowering art.

I’ve deified you upon
the grandest of thrones,
you’ve fallen to her feet
with stinging bones.

I’ve waited with the most
heroic of distress,
you’ve made this roller
coaster one of the best.

I’ve squeezed vitality
out of your spiraling soul,
you’ve made no decision,
and, love, it’s your roll.
