Tried

I tried to hum a truthful tune;
got hung up on her hubris

tried to see her unconditional;
stood staring through viewfinder

I tried to see her ugly;
seeped on through skin’s pretty face

tried to be a moral high ground;
got buried in her low

I tried to be her everything;
instead, left just vaporized

tried to be her valiant knight;
dried up in her day

I tried to be her time stands still;
but I’m just sand, sifting through her hourglass.
