Imprecise Dissection

We were tangled.

No matter what anyone said,

It was not two people "intertwined."
Intertwined implies an easy separation,
a string one can pull to unravel it all.
There was no string to pull as far as I could see.

What else was there to do?
I cut right down the middle of us
so that we would each lose a piece of ourselves,
but rather, my cut left you intact

and I lost some of myself to you.
