Heading Towards


Some say I’m just a flirt these days. I’ve been told that is part of my charm.

I do not know about these things and intention is not towards doing harm
I see where my circumstances have taken me
I cannot deny whatever price I have paid to be free
To some it may appear that I’m just wasting time
While to others it may look more like I’m heading towards a self destructive sign
My heart has been through so much disappointment lately that I feel out of control
Desperately clinging on to whatever semblance of familiarity can try to make it whole
One part wants a lover, while the other wants a mate.
Perhaps which path I take may lead to what is needed before it is too late
Some say we lead our way by predestined design
Others by a process of resign
I’m learning to give and take from what each has to give
I try not to ask for too much resolve and to live and let live
Try not to get yourself hurt friends have offered up as advice
Do whatever goodness you can and don’t leave things to their own device
What good can come from playing those who want a piece of you?
Giving in to desire can often lead to a false sense of what was never true
In the end we will be what we’ll be
Ask not for something that you cannot see
Steer away from a path of easy delights
Seek out a harder trail, one that will give your heart what it needs without taking too big a bite

  1. Sad poetry but very true, the journey to finding the right person can be a rough and tumultuous one. Though playing other people should never be a choice, it's done. When you find the right person they will be both the lover and the mate! Good luck to you my friend.

  2. No playing is never an option and can only lead one to further demise. Thank you for your kind and enduring insight.
