Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right"
- Henry Ford


Knowledge surging thru my brain,
I wonder why I continue to leap into this pain,
While you play hopscotch on my feeble heart.
Tearing away at my soul and my integrity,
Creating a sour disparity
In my still aching heart.
Agonizing over what once was -
So perfectly ingrained in my infinite mind because…
Those times meant something to me.
The deep angst you caused still flows back,
Somehow slithering callously thru the cracks
Overshadowing much more pleasant a times
(Or at least more pleasant than how I remember you now – after it all).
And I wonder why:
Why I continue to randomly cry,
Why I let you hector me so.
However, I do not blame you one tad.
For you once gave my heart everything it once had:
Yet I still fear you skulking in my heart,
But I long for you, despite your past ingratitude,
Your clear wrongdoings.
I have a burning lust for you to come again,
Despite what has happened again, again, and again.


Yours truly.

Really good. Maybe too long-winded for a poem and i don't like the use of 'thru', but that's just my opinion. Still great tho :) please check out my article: Writer's Block. it isn't really in paras by accident, but please struggle thru it...
