Kryptonite

Looking back, I don't feel so bad there wasn't much I could do. Even all the superheros couldn't save me from you. Captain America's shield couldn't have stopped the pain. All my efforts to understand you were all in vain. Not even Thor's hammer could keep you from me. You always came back and could never let me be. Even if I possessed the Hulk's pure strength, I couldn't stay away for any great length. Wonder Woman's lasso couldn't get past your outer shell. Your real feelings and emotions you were never willing to tell. Wolverines Adamantium claws couldn't have made you stay. No matter how tight I held on you were able to rip yourself away. I thought you were my future, Or at least my shining knight Although it hurts to admit it, maybe you're just my kryptonite. June 14, 2016
