Mystic and naive,
You enter my circle of life
Got closest to the midpoint,
Closer than anyone else has ever been
Yet you’re incessant in seeking the center
Troubled I was,
So I slowly push you toward the outer.
But you hang on to the edge.
With a hope that we too will keep our pledge.
But now the clock of time has ticked,
Reversing its hands.
Bringing you where I was,
And pushing me out of your plans.
It’s I that revolve around now,
Seeking you at the center.
I’ve become that merry-go-round,
That watches you from a distance,
But in your life can never enter.
Alone I keep,
Not that I feel alone or live alone,
But it’s all about the being they say.
Late at night or mid in the day,
I cry out aloud, my mind keeping all else at bay.
With just one solace
That the love I miss,
And the memory of that kiss,
Resides not with me alone.
We share our universe,
Even with our love strangled and thrown.
Miles apart, I know you are there.
Feeling the same void,
And longing for the same love.
You say you are not mine,
But I spot us together in this and in everything.
With our hearts beating together,
And souls beseeching for a ‘whether’
You say you have left me,
Then why do I feel your embrace?
As if it’s sharing the pain of my loneliness.
