Poem By Michelle Tiddy
Why is love so confusing?
Why do we think we've found it.
When sometimes it isn't real?
When we need it so badly we
Clutch at emotional straws
And turn 'nothing' into something
Why do so many of us
Choose the wrong path in the first place
Settling for something that doesn't
Truly ignite our fire, make the soul burn
Don't we believe in fairytales?
Don't we strive for what we dream?
When it doesn't fulfill us....
Is that why we seek more? seek
That perfect connection, that person
Who makes us thunder out of control...
But is that person 'the one'? Or just
Too darn dangerous and we should stay clear?
The choices we make have repercussions
All throughout our lives, why is it
We just can't seem to get it right?
Or is that really the mystery to life?
There are very few that are lucky enough
To be truly satisfied, should we take second-best?
Are we just too darned greedy?
Wanting everything and all at once
Instead of letting love shape and mold us
We crush it into bitter shards
That stab deep into the heart
Is love just a seed that needs to be watered?
I wish I knew the answer...
Instead of fumbling in the mist..
Content, happy, muddling along....
Is that enough, am I lying to myself
Am I being unfair to my spirit..
Or just a desperate witch...?
Why is love so difficult..
Or is it just us that make it so
Turning it into something more complicated
Than it really needs to be
If I could just be happy, inspired
And tugged along with a little passion
