Still here


Walk away, don’t look back, that’s the advice
So why oh why do I always think twice?
Is it love, hate or over-developed sense of duty
That sends me rushing in to fix it all
You’re difficult, demanding and don’t help yourself
Alienate the whole world on a daily basis
Push everyone away eventually, all but me

And yet, I don’t feel the same as I did,
I don’t look like I did, I have new dreams and plans
And yet still there’s a hold, a pull, a need to help
I ask myself what are you waiting for, what’s keeping you here
No life, only pain and endless tears, that’s all you have left
I do my best, but it’s never enough for you, never enough

The line between us isn’t thick enough, the walls not high enough
Always I hear you tugging and calling
And so I come back

Different, but back just the same.

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
