How can someone care so much,
Then suddenly change direction?
Must be some imbalance
In the lovers’ minds’ perception.
One minute you’re in ecstacy
The next you feel indifferent
Spent your lifetime searching
For a partner that’s equivelant
Then suddenly it’s just not enough
Your needs aren’t being met
You realise that if you carry on
It’s a life lived with regret.
You fight against the feelings
That you’ve held there for so long
Trying to uphold your dignity
By choosing right from wrong
You reach a certain point in time
And say " I won’t continue "
Put them in the too hard box
They’ve taken all that’s in you.
So now you’re left here with a space
Consumed by lovers’ lost
You’ve maintained your integrity
And strength but at what cost?
Do you give in to your yearnings
And emotional desires
Or do you battle on regardless
Of what your softer side requires?
Either way you leave a mark
That’s deep within your soul
It resonates within you
And continues to keep you whole.
