The Only Exception

by Quinlan L Gibson

I can't lose you; and i can't let you go.
I can't miss you, and i can't let it show.
I 've stopped bad habits
I've stopped loving.
I've stopped caring and trying.
I don't often cry (it's my positive vibe)
I have rules and opinions.
I have standards and sins
So why must you be
the only exception?
The one that kills me.
The one that burns.
The one that's fire.
Because desire is deadly.

Both passion and passivity may be lethal in their own ways - then again, indifference can be a slow, if relatively pain-free death. It seems the exception rules - & good question.
