why do I find myself
right here,
in a no-win left field
over and over again,
when I know better than this!

I see skid marks on my hands
and its all I can do
from imploding,
if this is a knee jerk reaction
then why am I fuming?
at those thoughts that race
and screech your name?

I am far too obsessive for any man's good
I want what I can't have,
that's normal ...
it must be the challenge
yet, I hate this dichotomy
too easy, I'm bored
too hard and I'm gone ...

I think I'll remain
right inside my mind,
and close down all doors
to write,
of memories and dreams
and such fabulous things
and live through my pen's willfull stride ...


Author's Note: who was it that said life was easy?
