Off the Deep End

I went off the deep end 
with you  

Drowning in my 
blinded conception 
of your love  

My descent 
took me closer 
to darkness 
and further 
from the truth  

You were never mine  

Not really

*A bit of fiction here, my friends. All is well. 
I've had trouble lately being inspired to write.  
What comes seems to be dark.
