Catch & Release

It’s no surprise, I took the bait
Grabbed on and let you pull me in
Even though I know how this all goes.

In I go, as you reel me in, drawing me closer and closer.

I hoped we’d make it this time,
But you just catch and release.
Like you always do.

You drop me back into the sea just before I’m about to surface,
Leaving me treading around, awaiting your next baited line.

I should know better, I should be smarter after all this time.

But I’ll still wait for the hook to drop back down into the water,
So I can latch on tightly once again.

Even though I know you’ll just release me once more.
