Hindsight lightens the night,
clears the way bringing new insight.
Perhaps it was all in my head,
stuffed in my heart, bursting at the seams,
which she gladly ripped apart.

I didn't get it that night.
Her actions sprang contempt.
Yet I could sense the care in her speech,
the joy in her eyes, smiles that burned
and sent my soul to the skies.

But hindsight brings new insight,
she described me with one word
and wanted to prove herself right.
Oh how I wish I knew the goal of her night,
the truth behind her smile
and the desires she holds so tight.

If a drop of my being is still in her sight,
sneaking up in her dreams
and bringing her delight,
then my obsessions would be just
and my dreams would remain no more.

Yet I have no basis for hope to remain,
have no reason to keep praying in vain.
Built up and beaming because of her sake,
it's all too clear, she wanted to see me break.
