Hard To Contemplate. A Poem


Sleepless once again
Thoughts not wanting to end
Worries aplenty
No solutions forthcoming.

There are so many things
That could drive us away
Then apart would be
The next step we'd take.
I see this
And it causes me
So much pain.
I catch my breath
And nearly hyperventilate.

You think I exaggerate?
Am being overly dramatic?
Listen to my thoughts
And give me your take.

The differences are unsustainable.
It's crazy to keep holding on
Yes we are both lonely
And kind hearted people
But we are fooling ourselves
That we can have a future
That gives us what we really want.

For me that would be someone
Who can love me alone.
Not look for the bodies of others
To satisfy an urge.

For him he seemingly wants
His hand held
Someone as a companion
Who supports his extracurricular pursuits.

His past girlfriends agreed
To this arrangement
So is my hesitation
Just me being selfish?
What about my wishes
And my comfort?

Filling the present void
Of each other's loneliness
Will create future unhappiness.
As our different desires
Seek fulfillment.

I love being his friend
And companion
But he can't give me
The romantic part
Of a coupling equation.

Which leads me back
To why I can't sleep
I am too weak
To make a break.
Courage eludes me.
The solution is staring
Me in the face.
But to take action
Is hard to contemplate.

You're not selfish in the least.
You're not like the other girls.
You wish to be the only feast.
You want pleasure not pearls.
