Reinstalling my System (7)
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
I have so much, so very much
My frame can't hold it all
I'll burst if I attempt to keep
Its mass behind a wall.
I feel so guilty! I have failed
To keep the borders free
Of raging feelings, now and then--
But then, they lied to me.
They kept me from the lovely fact:
Some hearts can love much more!
I was deceived--mine's such a heart,
But they said to ignore
The feelings, genuine and strong
That flowed with current swift
A curse to those with vows to one,
But otherwise, a gift--
A present vast that can be shared
Yes, many can partake
But only with permission. Yes,
That is my main mistake.
I cannot bear to risk the love
That I'm committed to,
By telling all, and risking thus
This bond. I wish I knew
A way to safely share the truth,
A way to cause no pain,
No doubt, no anger; risk no rupture.
I long to explain.

Inspired by (sequel to):
No more can I control the way
I love, the quality
Of my affection, nor the strength--
