How Can I?

by Tony   Jul 17, 2018

Heart and mind just can't connect
These feelings my soul won't neglect
So they keep me awake and cause me pain
Careening down corridors in my brain
Ricocheting right through my reverie
Keeping me from thinking clearly
They open doors and leave them ajar
Leading back to where you are
Breadcrumbs for astral projection
A lie leading to a false connection
To two hearts that just don't belong
That can't be one because one is wrong
That one is mine I've come to see
That we two can never come to be
I write lines to help me ease the agony
Of the knife that life put in my back we...
Just need to let go. But how can I?

    I hesitate to say I enjoyed this piece, Tony, simply because of the rather sad content. However, it's very well written and well conveyed and I'm glad to see it nominated.

    Take care and all the best as ever,
