What Do You See When You Look Over At Me?

What do you see when you look over at me?

Love and the future, or the desire to be free?

The actions, the words, they’re all out of sync

Creating imbalance

So what did you think?

When you left me alone

To reflect and to muse

Alone with my thoughts, my feelings, to chose

The next steps in my life, in your life as well

Responsible for choosing our heaven, our hell

The question however that chases my mind is

What if they’re different?

Not at all in alignment

Our needs and our wants

Do we even know how?

Closed hearts to be opened, can we even allow

The love, the emotion, the passion so spent

Embattled and bruised by each argument

Do we have what it takes to rebuild and regrow?

Or do we pack up the pieces and let broken hearts go?

    • I’m so glad it spoke to your soul. Doesn’t it feels so much better to know we are not alone in the universe and that other hearts are feeling the same pain? Thank you for your comment. It is beautiful. Here’s to healing and clarity. Cheers!
