Welcoming Catastrophe

You are the human equivalent 
of a category 5 hurricane 
to the lush little island
that is my heart.
Motivated forgetting.
That's a poor excuse 
for why I greet your returns
with such jubilation.
I feel such rapture in your attention 
so blind to the destruction I know is coming.
Each time you leave
you take away parts of me,
but completely forget I'm here.
You leave me nothing 
but wreckage.
The truth is,
I'm a seasoned survivor,
who has weathered storms 
far more deadly than you,
and although I love standing in the eye of your storm
I'm ready to house my heart and soul
somewhere they won't have to be rebuilt so often.
