Too much to offer

I gave you a piece of me, This doesn’t make you, Necessarily a cannibal I missed that piece all of a sudden, I tried to take it back, But you had it already in your stomach, And dumb happiness reflected on your face. I felt suddenly sad, I’d lost a piece of me, But weirdly I felt heaviness, Instead of lawfully released. You surprised me with a smile, And a piece of you offered in gift, I had no place for it, So, I pained deep inside my bones, Cried out this was a mistake, Ran away, Crippled, cold and all alone, No magic trio in this story, Right place, right person, right time Just a single revelation instead, I offered a wrong piece of myself.
