she wasn't just a person,
to him she was much more.
she wasn't merely skin and bones,
but a universe to explore.
and so he put his faith in her,
though somewhat undeserved.
he just knew that she would save him,
for she knew he needed her.
but she couldn't save him,
nor did she even try,
because she wasn't quite aware
of the way he felt inside.
and as his view of her grew dim
and quickly changed back to bones and skin,
he learned a person is merely a person
no matter how much you hope in them.
