dilemma

lost
not in time but in place
gone
not the one but the hope
love
still abounds but displaced
pain
permeates, gravitates, to the heart

if i could, i would make it all better

all i wanted was to feel that bright smile
all i needed was for things to be right
all i had i was so grateful for
all you gave me made me crave you more

trust
it was there but not fully
mistakes
we both made them, it's human
truth
seemed eluding, unattainable
beauty
seen within and throughout

promise
love, respect, and always be there
vision
what's the point of us being here
time
what it could take us to get somewhere
fate
what will happen when all's said and done

i don't want to push anyone anywhere
i don't want to hate or hurt anymore
all i really know is that i'm scrambled up inside
i just want to hide, be near tonight, and make things right

pent up emotion lingers in the air
the discussions we've had ringing in my ear
my thoughts are all sad at a possibility
that it may not work out, a love is in doubt

love
what form should it adopt
love
is strong enough to tough it out
love
am i capable of it at all
love
is it found or have i lost it all

all i wanted was to feel that bright smile
all i needed was for things to be right
all i had i was so grateful for
all you gave me made me crave you more
if i could, i would make it all better
i'll let go if i have to but i surely don't want to
i'm still trying
i'm still crying
it is there
i do care
