Out of My Depth

He glimmered and he glistened
On a drift I couldn’t catch
He betted to the heavens
With a bid I couldn’t match

His nature was beyond me
Disarmed, I stopped responding
To him, I owed a debt
I was out of my depth

I questioned my perception
For a glimpse into his summer
I warred without exception
Fought the fight to wear his color

Yet, despite his choir’s resonance
His words did not take residence
To him, I owed a debt
The dots did not connect

I couldn’t comprehend
I didn’t understand
The way of his word
And the laws of my land

Resolved I wouldn’t get Him
Absolved myself of guilt
To Him, I owed a debt
I was out of my depth
