The Conflict

The gentle breeze

It washes over me

As I sit and think of you.

I hate you.

Outside you are close

Inside you are far.

I love to smile

When you take over the thoughts in my head.

But after awhile, the memories are dead.

Now they are returning,

I don't know what to think

Speak or do.

But I hate you.

Trying to guess what is inside that mind of yours

How much is there to lose?

I've been hurt before,

So do I really want to know the truth?

What can I say to you?

I am afraid.

The words held in my heart

Locked in a cage of fire

Never to be set free

How do you see me?

The pounding in my chest

Cannot lie

But I hate you.

I have broken before.

I am afraid.

I'm elated

One wish to just get close

One wish just to see

Should I take out the key?

Let loose all feeling

Flood the Earth with my secrets

But I hate you.

I am afraid.

The desire

Twists and turns in my mind

Will not leave again

My heart flutters

As it dreams

And beats.

Attraction

So strong,

Cannot deny

The emotion in my soul.

But I hate you.

I am free,

I am lifted,

Happy.

I am afraid.

I like you.

I want you.
