When Love Is Not Enough

A Poem For You

My heart beats for you

I know I love you through and through

But honey I can’t get to you

We get so close, then our time is up

Every time

I don’t know why

Our hourglass is always running out of sand

I wanted you to be my man

We climb and climb

We get so close

Till we fall behind

Every time

Your life continues

My life goes on

But my heart still cries out for you at night

Every time I close my eyes

I want to feel your love

It is not in the person whom I am laying beside

I am torn

Torn like delicate fabric

I try to piece it back together

But the seems keep coming loose

I can’t get it back to how it was before

Impossible decisions are what I am faced with

I wish it was simple

Like child’s play

I wish we could be together

And it could be okay

Nothing is ever enough

My efforts are as good as dust

Why did I fall in love with someone I can never be with?

The rain pours down on me

I swim in my own melancholy

The hurt I feel reminds that what we almost had was real

But what we want can never be

I’ll sit up on my mountaintop

And love you from a distance

I can’t abandon my life

So Ill take the road of least resistance

I’m always thinking of you

And wishing you were here

If only things were different

I have so much love for you my dear
